"Anything is Possible" by Elisabeth Strout

Literary Circle / Free admission

 

Recalling Strout’s Pulitzer-winning Olive Kitteridge in its richness, structure, and complexity, Anything Is Possible explores the whole range of human emotion through the intimate dramas of people struggling to understand themselves and others. This collection of interrelated stories tells the story of the inhabitants of rural, dusty Amgash, Illinois, the hometown of Lucy Barton, a successful New York writer who finally returns, after seventeen years of absence, to visit the siblings she left behind.

 

Reverberating with the deep bonds of family and the hope that comes with reconciliation, Anything Is Possible underscores Elizabeth Strout's place as one of America's most respected authors. The book won The Story Prize and was listed by President Obama as one of the best books he read in 2017.
