New members are always welcome. The book club meets at the library on the second Monday of each month at 6:45 pm, unless otherwise stated.
Upcoming dates and selections:
April 13, 2020, at 6:45 pm – “The Once and Future King,” by T.H. White. Once upon a time, a young boy was tutored by a magician named Merlyn in preparation for a future he couldn’t possibly imagine. A future in which he would ally himself with the greatest knights, love a legendary queen and unite a country dedicated to chivalrous values. A future that would see him crowned and known for all time as Arthur, King of the Britons.
May 11, 2020, at 6:45 pm – “Mansfield Park,” by Jane Austin.Taken from the poverty of her parents’ home at age 10, Fanny Price is brought up with her rich cousins at Mansfield Park, acutely aware of her humble rank and with her cousin Edmund as her sole ally.
June 8, 2020, at 6:45 pm – “Becoming” (a memoir), by Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama shares experiences that have shaped her–her childhood on the South Side of Chicago, her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address.
July 13, 2020, at 6:45 pm – “Ready Player One,” by Ernest Cline. In the year 2045, reality is an ugly place. Teenage Wade Watts only feels alive when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS–& searching for hidden keys to a fortune based on the deceased creator’s obsession with pop culture of decades past — specifically the 80’s.
The next month’s selection is normally available for pick up at the library front desk on book club night.
