Trivia 200

Filed under: Trivia — susanbright @ 9:41 am

What book from the Friday Morning Bookclub’s list takes place in a depressed New England mill town?

We welcome all answers and comments!

Thank you Esther. In his Pulitzer prize winning book, Empire Falls, Richard Russo  brings to life the many residents of this small, dying mill town in Maine. 



  1. I believe that the answer is Empire Falls by Richard Russo. I loved that book. I currently have Richard Russo’s latest book, “That Old Cape Magic” on my bookshelf, but I haven’t read it yet.

  3. We read Empire Falls in our book group.I loved it and rented the movie with some of my neighbors. Paul Newman played the father and the main character.
