Join us as we read Commonwealth by Ann Patchett. Bert Cousins arrives uninvited at Franny Keating's christening party,
recalling Sleeping Beauty's bad fairy and wreaking just as much havoc.
He ends up kissing Franny's mother, Beverly, an act that eventually ends both their marriages and joins the Cousins and Keating children
in one big, genuinely affectionate bunch who look askance at their
parents. When an adult Franny reveals her family's backstory to famed
author Leon Posen, he turns it into a must-read book, which forces the
siblings to reevaluate their lives together.
