March Book Discussion: My Italian Bulldozer

Cover of My Italian Bulldozer by Alexander McCall SmithJoin us on Monday, March 19, at 6:30 pm for a book discussion on My Italian Bulldozer: A Novel by Alexander McCall Smith.

When writer Paul Stewart heads to the idyllic Italian town of Montalcino to finish his already overdue cookbook, he expects it to be the perfect escape from stressful city life. But when he arrives, things quickly take a turn for the worse. His hired car is nowhere to be found, and with no record of a reservation at the car-rental counter, and no other cars available, it appears that Paul will be stuck at the airport--that is, until an enterprising stranger offers him an unexpected alternative: a bulldozer. With little choice in the matter, Paul accepts, and so begins a series of laugh-out-loud adventures as he trundles through the Tuscan countryside. A story of unexpected circumstances and making the best of what you have, My Italian Bulldozer is a warm and witty read that will bring a smile to your face.

Free. For Ages 18+. No registration required. Please call the library at 281-471-4022 if you would like to have the book put on hold for you.
