      EVENT DETAILS
      Wall Book Club: Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney, Wall Township Branch, Monmouth County Library System

      She took 1930s New York by storm, working her way up writing copy for R.H. Macy's to become the highest paid advertising woman in the country. It's the last night of 1984 and Lillian, 85 years old, is on her way to a party. Her son keeps warning her about a subway vigilante on the prowl--but the quick-tongued Lillian has never scared easily. On her ten mile walk around the city she meets bartenders, bodega clerks, security guards, criminals, children, parents and parents-to-be, while reviewing a life of excitement and adversity, passion and heartbreak, illuminating all the ways New York has changed -- and has not.
