Fever

Join us to discuss our February virtual book club selection, Fever by Mary Beth Keane.

At first glance, the story of Mary Mallon seems like a model of the so-called American Dream. As an Irish immigrant at the turn of the twentieth century, she worked her way up from theposition of a domestic servant to working as a cook to several elite New York families. But the trail of disease she left in her wake led to the moniker by which she is famous: Typhoid Mary.

In this novel, author Mary Beth Keane sets out to tell the story of Mary Mallon—headstrong and independent—set against the vibrant landscape of early twentieth-century New York.
