The West Ocean Book Club will be meeting June 21 at 7pm to discuss Crossroads: A Novel by Jonathan Franzen (fiction, 2022, 593 pages). Bring a drink and snacks and join us in the Tower 2 Multipurpose Room or via Zoom at https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83357528100?pwd=bm5JQmZjc0k4cmUxN3NKVlBEcUJOQT09 (Meeting ID: 833 5752 8100, Passcode: 982667). 

It’s December 23, 1971, and heavy weather is forecast for Chicago. Russ Hildebrandt, the associate pastor of a liberal suburban church, is on the brink of breaking free of a marriage he finds joyless―unless his wife, Marion, who has her own secret life, beats him to it. Their eldest child, Clem, is coming home from college on fire with moral absolutism, having taken an action that will shatter his father. Clem’s sister, Becky, long the social queen of her high-school class, has sharply veered into the counterculture, while their brilliant younger brother Perry, who’s been selling drugs to seventh graders, has resolved to be a better person. Each of the Hildebrandts seeks a freedom that each of the others threatens to complicate.

Jonathan Franzen’s novels are celebrated for their unforgettably vivid characters and for their keen-eyed take on contemporary America. Now, in Crossroads, Franzen ventures back into the past and explores the history of two generations. With characteristic humor and complexity, and with even greater warmth, he conjures a world that resonates powerfully with our own.

Pool Heater & Window Washing

The Association’s pool vendor has been to the building this morning, and the new pool heater has been installed. The water temperature will remain between 86 and 88 degrees.

The next round of window washing will begin on Wednesday (5/17) at approximately 9:00 a.m. on Tower 1. The entire window cleaning process will take approximately one month to complete.
