The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Book Discussion

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Book Discussion Online

“When you're given an opportunity to change your life, be ready to do whatever it takes to make it happen. The world doesn't give things, you take things. If you learn one thing from me, it should probably be this.” Do the ends justify the means? Is limitless ambition a good or a bad thing? These are some of the questions examined in the book selected for the Hamden Book Discussion Group for January.

Please join us on Zoom Monday, January 31, from 6:30-7:30 to discuss “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” by Taylor Jenkins Reed.

A review in the Globe and Mail describes the book as “A cinematic tale with hardscrabble roots, staggering highs and sickening lows. The novel reads like a celebrity tell-all, and this makes it delicious. But it's also got heft, because Hugo's story is one of overcoming adversity, racism and sexism to get to the top. She fails, falls, triumphs and learns difficult lessons about the things that really matter. With this riveting novel, Reid has created an exceptional character with the wherewithal to take on the patriarchy.”
