Laura Moriarty Book Club Picks
by Laura Moriarty
“The Chaperone” will touch many nerves and entertain from start to finish. The book follows Cora as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery. It shows how the past shapes the future and the young challenge and push it forwar
The book explores the social mores of the 1920s and the life of a typical woman during this period and touches on topics such as the Ku Klux Klan, homosexuality, societies attitude towards orphans, prohibition and some now defunct conventions of the time. It also examines the women's movement and it's interesting to note that the back story is about Louise Brooks, a real person.
