Page 10 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • July 22, 2009 Glen Rock Roundup Hornby novel to be discussed On Tuesday, July 21 at 2 p.m. “How to Be Good” by Nick Hornby will be discussed at the Tea and Talk at 2 with the Tuesday Book Group. Tea and Talk occurs every Tuesday at 2. Book discussions are held the third Tuesday of each month. The discussions are informal and lively. Glen Rock resident Helen Kennelly is the hostess and Roz Pelcyger is the facilitator. “How to Be Good” is partly a wry marital comedy about how a spouse’s change of heart invariably destabilizes his longtime partner’s own identity, but it’s also a thorny parable about the dangers of complacent, conventional self-satisfaction. This funny and shrewd novel is full of acerbic observations about book-buying habits, the virtues of friends who don’t really listen, the tactlessness of children, movies that involve spacecraft or insects or noise, and the crankiness of the dissatisfied souls who hover in the margins of the creative life. Area residents are invited to join. The Glen Rock Public Library is located at 315 Rock Road.
