Description:
 The Somers Library Book Group meets to discuss Sarah Winman’s “Still Life.” Tuscany, 1944: As Allied troops advance and bombs fall around deserted villages, a young English soldier, Ulysses Temper, finds himself in the wine cellar of a deserted villa. There he encounters Evelyn Skinner, a middle aged art historian, who has come to Italy to salvage paintings from the ruins. Together they find a kindred spirit and set off on a course of events that shapes Ulysses’ for the next 40 years. Story is described as “a sweeping portrait of unforgettable individuals who come together across 40 years of love, war, art and the Tuscan sun.” This Library-sponsored book group is led by Diana Cunningham, Librarian, who selects the books to be discussed, chosen in consultation with Tara Ferretti, Head of Public Services, with feedback and suggestions from the group. Registration is required. For more information, please call the reference desk at (914) 232-5717 ext.3. Copies of the book to be discussed are available on a first-come first serve basis.
