Turning Pages Book Discussion: Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk
September 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
On the snowy New Year’s Eve of 1984, Lillian Boxfish leaves her Manhattan apartment for dinner at her favorite restaurant. Instead, she rambles through the city, remembering her life as an up-and-coming ad executive in Jazz Age New York. Seriously talented and not treated seriously, Lillian competed against the men in her job until her career derailed. Now 85 years old and undaunted by the degenerating city, she encounters limo drivers, bodega workers, and hip young people, until a midnight encounter brings her face-to-face with New York’s newest danger.
