The voters have spoken! The next selection for Moira’s Seattle Times Book Club will be “Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk” by Kathleen Rooney. A national bestseller following its 2017 publication, the novel follows an 85-year-old woman as she strolls around 1984 Manhattan, looking back on her eventful life — which included a stint as the most highly paid advertising woman in America. (The book was inspired by the real-life copywriter and poet Margaret Fishback, who worked in advertising at Macy’s in the 1930s.)
