The Croswell Opera House is inviting book clubs and individual readers to take part in a Community Read this winter of Ilene Beckerman’s novel “Love, Loss and What I Wore.”
The novel uses clothing and accessories — and the memories they trigger — to tell a series of funny and sometimes poignant stories about women’s lives. The New York Times said it “illuminates the experience of an entire generation of women,” and People Magazine called it “unsettling and oddly powerful.”
“Love, Loss and What I Wore” was adapted into a stage play by Nora and Delia Ephron, and the Community Read coincides with the Croswell’s upcoming production of that show, which opens March 21. Book clubs or other organizations wishing to buy tickets as a group are eligible for discounts on the admission price.
The Croswell has assembled packets of information about the book and the process of adapting it for the stage. To request a packet, any book club organizer can call 517-264-7469 or stop by the box office at 129 E. Maumee St. in Adrian. It can also be downloaded here.
