Perspectives Book Group - Peyton Place

Presenter: Tammi Truax

As part of New Hampshire Humanities' Perspectives Book Groups, we're reading Peyton Place by Grace Metalious. 

First published in 1956, Peyton Place uncovers the passions, lies and cruelties that simmer beneath the surface of a postcard-perfect town. At the centre of the novel are three women, each with a secret to hide: Constance MacKenzie, the original desperate housewife; her daughter Allison, whose dreams are stifled by small-town small-mindedness; and Selena Cross, her gypsy-eyed friend from the wrong side of the tracks.

Pre-registration is required to receive the book prior to the discussion. Please use the contact information in the event details below to pre-register.

Join us as we celebrate 50 years of bringing the humanities to your community!
