August's book club meeting will be hosted at Fawn Sternberg's house located at 34741 US Route 11, Philadelphia, NY 13673 on Thursday August 22 from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm. The selected title is "The Story of Edgar Sawtell" by David Wroblewski.
Born mute, speaking only in sign, Edgar Sawtell leads an idyllic life with his parents on their farm in remote northern Wisconsin. For generations, the Sawtelles have raised and trained a fictional breed of dog whose thoughtul companionship is epitomized by Almodine, Edgar's lifelong friend and ally. But with the unexpected return of Claude, Edgar's paternal uncle, turmoil consumes the Sawtelles' once peaceful home. When Edgar's father dies suddenly, Claude insinuates hmself into the life of the farm-and into Edgar's mother's affections.
