Book Discussion: The Whole Town’s Talking, 6 p.m.

The Whole Town’s Talking,” a novel in the tradition of Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” and Flagg’s own “Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven,” tells the story of Lordor Nordstrom, his Swedish mail-order bride, Katrina, and their neighbors and descendants as they live, love, die, and carry on in mysterious and surprising ways. Lordor Nordstrom created, in his wisdom, not only a lively town and a prosperous legacy for himself but also a beautiful final resting place for his family, friends, and neighbors yet to come. “Resting place” turns out to be a bit of a misnomer, however. Odd things begin to happen, and it starts the whole town talking. This event will be held at Allen Avenue School, 290 Allen Ave.
