Alhambra Page Turners Book Club

Join the Alhambra Page Turners each Tuesday night for a lively discussion. Tonight we will discuss Part One and Two.  The Long Haul by Finn Murphy. A long-haul mover’s rollicking account of life out on the Big Slab. More than thirty years ago, Finn Murphy dropped out of college to become a long-haul trucker. Since then he’s covered more than a million miles packing, loading, and hauling people’s belongings all over America. Known by his trucker handle as U-Turn, he spends his days (and many of his nights) in a 53-foot eighteen-wheeler he calls Cassidy. Brimming with personality and filled with great characters, The Long Haul is a resonant portrait of the enduring appeal of manual labor in the dark underbelly of the American Dream. Please come with one or two book suggesstions. For questions call Lisa Perez at (626) 570-5008 x. 5651.
