February book group to discuss ‘Oscar Wao’
The Jamestown Philomenian Library’s book group will read Junot Diaz’s “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” for next month’s discussion on Feb. 21. Copies of the book are available at the Jamestown library and through the Ocean State Library System. The book – Diaz’s second novel – won the Pulitzer Prize in 2008. In the book, the author uses parallels from his own experiences growing up in the Dominican Republic and New Jersey.
