SHORT AND SWEET BOOK GROUP with Alex Neceda on ZOOM
Thursday, May 14th at 10am.
The Enchanted April by Elizabeth Von Arnim, was a best-seller in both England and the United States, where it was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, and set off a craze for tourism to Portofino, Italy. More recently, the novel has been the inspiration for a major film and a Broadway play. In this novel, four very different women, looking to escape dreary London for the sunshine of Italy, take up an offer advertised in the Times for a “small medieval Italian Castle on the shores of the Mediterranean to be let furnished for the month of April.” As each blossoms in the warmth of the Italian spring, quite unexpected changes occur.
