The Dakota Winters, by Tom Barbash

The Dakota Winters is an evocative and wildly absorbing novel about the Winters, a family living in New York City’s famed Dakota apartment building in the year leading up to John Lennon’s assassination. By turns hilarious and poignant, The Dakota Winters is a family saga, a page-turning social novel, and a tale of a critical moment in the history of New York City and the country at large.

All are invited to join The Mamaroneck and At Home on the Sound Book club as we continue our year of New York reads!
