The BBB’s selection for March is The Long Haul: A Trucker’s Tales of Life on the Road by Finn Murphy (nonfiction).
“More than 30 years ago Finn Murphy dropped out of college to become a trucker. Since then he’s covered hundreds of thousands of miles packing, loading, and hauling people’s belongings all over America”…“He tells funny, poignant, and haunting stories of the people he moves: a hoarder in New Hamp- shire, a Virginia homeowner raging when Murphy’s truck accidentally runs down a stand of trees, a widow rushing her archaeologist husband’s remains and relics to a Navajo burial ceremony in New Mexico. Brimming with personality and great characters, The Long Haul explores the appeal of manual labor and shows what happens behind the scenes when we call the movers.” (Amazon)
The Brown Bag Books group meets year-round, except in July and August. Many attendees bring their lunches, and everyone brings a sense of humor. Monthly sessions are always lively and enjoyable. Books chosen by the group for discussion are usually listed in the Order of Service and the Bulletin, as well as on the UUCPA website.
