[ARCHIVED] Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Stylized illustration of female form; orange blouse, brown skirt

Library Book Group’s title to ring in the New Year

PASO ROBLES, CA –December 1, 2020  Kick off the New Year with the Library Book Group’s Zoom discussion of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine on Thursday, January 21, 2021, 7:00-8:00 pm. 

No one ever told Eleanor, a woman who struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking, that life should be better than fine. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life but everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office, and together they save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk. Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes the only way to survive is to open your heart. “This book examines how friendships form and how they can be life-changing; it will be a perfect read for this month’s theme of friendship,” stated Adult Services Librarian Karen Christiansen. 

This title is available through the Black Gold Library System and the Overdrive digital platform. Space is limited. Registration is required for all participants to receive the ZOOM meetup information. For ages 16+. 

At this time, the Library is open Monday-Saturday 9-10 for vulnerable populations; Monday-Friday 10-7 for the general public and Saturday 10-4 for the general public. Curbside service is also available. Call the library at 805-237-3870 or visit prcity.com/library and the Library Facebook and Instagram sites for more information.
