May 9, 2019 | 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

All are welcome to join Novel Ideas, NPL's Adult Book Group! We read a different fiction title every month and meet to discuss it. This month's title is: White Houses by Amy Bloom.


Lorena Hickok meets Eleanor Roosevelt in 1932 while reporting on Franklin Roosevelt's first presidential campaign. She is not instantly charmed by the idealistic, patrician Eleanor. As their connection deepens into intimacy, what begins as a powerful passion matures into a lasting love, and a life that Hick never expected to have. After she takes a job in the Roosevelt administration, promoting and protecting both Roosevelts, she comes to know Franklin not only as a great president but as a complicated rival and an irresistible friend, capable of changing lives even after his death.
