Pulitzer Prize winner and American master Anne Tyler brings us Vinegar Girl, a witty contemporary take on one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, The Taming of the Shrew. NPR’s Review: “Despite its ever-controversial sexism, The Taming of the Shrew remains one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies—in both the original and its many modern adaptations, including Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate. And now Anne Tyler… has tamed the Bard’s shrewish battle of the sexes into a far more politically correct screwball comedy of manners that actually channels Jane Austen more than Shakespeare. It’s clear that she had fun with Vinegar Girl, and readers will too.” Copies are available to check out from the church office. Brownbag lunch followed by a lively discussion.
