Event Retired Readers Book Group

July 10, 2019 | 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

The Retired Readers Book Group invites you to join our monthly book discussion at the Newburyport Senior Community Center, located at 331 High Street in Newburyport. This group meets on the second Wednesday each month. This month's title is: Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.

On a foggy summer night, eleven people, ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter, depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs, the painter, and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family. With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members, the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens. As the passengers' intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy. Was it merely by dumb chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something far more sinister at work?
