Past Event: Greenwich Pen Women Book Discussion of “The Madness of Crowds,” by Louise Penny

Greenwich Pen Women and Perrot Memorial Library continued their cosponsored book discussion series on Monday, May 2, 2022, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm, This was be a live discussion, held in the Library’s Rand Room. The group discussed The Madness of Crowds, by Louise Penny. The discussion was facilitated by Greenwich Pen Women member Kathy DiGiovanna.

Louise Penny’s The Madness of Crowds is a perplexing murder mystery set in Three Pines that is also a nuanced look at conviction, delusion, and the tipping point between the two. It’s almost New Year’s in Québec when a request is made of Chief Inspector Gamache to provide security at a public event that brings a divisive figure into the orbit of Three Pines. Professor Abigail Robinson’s notoriety rests on weaponizing pandemic data in a bid to convince the public that it will become necessary to conserve resources by prioritizing some lives over others. And she’s succeeding, though her catchphrase, ça va bien aller—all will be well—now holds a terrible irony for the Gamache family. When a murderer strikes close to Robinson, Gamache and Jean-Guy have to separate their disquiet from their professional obligations. [excerpted from Amazon.com]
