Vinegar Girl – Anne Tyler
Come and celebrate Valentine’s Day and all things romantic at the Elanora Library Open book club in February.
Pulitzer prize winning author Tyler excels at domestic fiction and making the ordinary extraordinary, so she was the obvious choice for a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Her witty take on one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies is set in contemporary Baltimore. The shrew is Kate, a modern feminist preschool teacher and her unlikely romantic lead is Pyotr, her scientist father’s Russian lab assistant. Girl meets boy, girl does not like or need boy …. and the rest, as they say, is history!
