WestportREADS 2017: Neighbors & Newcomers and PageTurners Discuss "Bettyville"
Join the Neighbors & Newcomers of Westport and PageTurners to discuss WestportREADS selection for 2017 of Bettyville by George Hodgman. This humorous and insightful memoir is the story of how he left Manhattan for his hometown of Paris, Missouri, and found himself an unlikely caregiver for his aging mother, Betty, a woman of wit and will who was in her nineties and showing signs of dementia. George struggles over whether to try and lure her into assisted living, away from the home they both treasure. Betty, who speaks her mind but keeps her emotions private, has never accepted the fact that her son is gay.
