Did you miss our most recent book club? Or maybe you didn’t catch which book we read? Girl we got you covered!
For our June Book Club we dove right into The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman. And we just gotta say – for the ladies who did read it (because you know, you’re 100% allowed to come to book club without reading the book to catch up with friends and drink wine) they absolutely loved it!
Mystery, a great love and the turn of the century make a great read!
Here’s your synopsis via Good Reads:
Coralie Sardie is the daughter of the sinister impresario behind The Museum of Extraordinary Things, a Coney Island boardwalk freak show that thrills the masses. An exceptional swimmer, Coralie appears as the Mermaid in her father’s “museum,” alongside performers like the Wolfman, the Butterfly Girl, and a one-hundred-year-old turtle. One night Coralie stumbles upon a striking young man taking pictures of moonlit trees in the woods off the Hudson River. The dashing photographer is Eddie Cohen, a Russian immigrant who has run away from his father’s Lower East Side Orthodox community and his job as a tailor’s apprentice. When Eddie photographs the devastation on the streets of New York following the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, he becomes embroiled in the suspicious mystery behind a young woman’s disappearance and ignites the heart of Coralie.
