Olive, AgainBook - 2019
From Library Staff
Recommended by Lynden Library's "Award Winning Book Club"
Hall of Fame author! “Olive Kitteridge is back and still as crotchety, opinionated, and endearing as ever. Aging, death, racism, prejudices, infidelities–nothing gets past Olive as she sticks her nose into every corner of her small town.”
Sharon Hutchins, Keytesville Library, Keytesville, MO

During a discussion of faith with a young woman having cancer treatments, Olive says: “I think our job-maybe even our duty-is to-To bear the burden of the mystery with as much grace as we can”
Pg 204-“When you get old, you become invisible. It’s just the truth. And yet it’s freeing in a way.
Her companion says, “Tell me how it’s freeing.”
“Well,” Olive was slightly taken aback; she didn’t know how to explain it. “It’s just that you don’t count anymore, and there is something freeing about that.
I don’t think I can explain this well. But you go through life and think you’re something. Not in a good way and not in a bad way. But you think you are something. And then you see that you are no longer anything. You become invisible and it’s freeing. “
