Our next book we’ll be discussing is And The World Played Chess by Robert Dugoni. This is “A riveting story of boys becoming men and the risks they take along the way,” — The Library Journal. We’ll be meeting in the Fellowship Hall at 10 AM, March 31.
In 1979, Vincent Bianco has just graduated high school. His only desire: collect a little beer money and enjoy his final summer before college. So he lands a job as a laborer on a construction crew. Working alongside two Vietnam vets, one suffering from PTSD, Vincent gets the education of a lifetime. Now forty years later, with his own son leaving for college, the lessons of that summer – Vincent’s last taste of innocence and first taste of real life – dramatically unfold in a novel about breaking away, shaping a life, and seeking one’s own destiny.
