PACG Book Club - The Cider House Rules by John Irving
Monday, September 19th at 5:00 pm - Updated
We will continue to meet via Zoom in September, partly due to personal plans that make it impossible for me (Alta) to attend in person. Also, for this month we will meet at 5:00 pm, rather than at 4:30 pm as originally scheduled. So we will meet at 5:00 pm on Monday, September 19th.
Here is more information from Goodreads:
Raised from birth in the orphanage at St. Cloud's, Maine, Homer Wells has become the protege of Dr. Wilbur Larch, its physician and director. There Dr. Larch cares for the troubled mothers who seek his help, either by delivering and taking in their unwanted babies or by performing illegal abortions. Meticulously trained by Dr. Larch, Homer assists in the former, but draws the line at the latter. Then a young man brings his beautiful fiancee to Dr. Larch for an abortion, and everything about the couple beckons Homer to the wide world outside the orphanage.
