So, it’s been a while since I’ve updated the information on this blog. We’ve read some books that people have loved, and some that we’ve disliked. I Am Malala is a recent favorite, and I’m sorry that the Pakistani fudge didn’t work out. Our next book will be the Orphan Train by Christina Kline, and we will meet in about two weeks to discuss it.
Sorry about the incredibly long delay in posting. Contrary to how it might appear, we actually have met since May. We read The Color of Water in June, Habits of the House in July, War Dances in August, and Beyond Outrage in September. In October we will meet to discuss America’s Women by Gail Collins. Unfortunately, copies are scarce, but I do have an audiobook version on the way, and we may be able to acquire another print copy. Fall schedules are out, and we will read The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich in November, and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak in December. Happy reading!
Thanks, everyone, for coming to the Hunger Games discussion last night. I hope everyone enjoyed the banana bread! If you were unable to be there, copies of our next book, The Color of Water by James McBride, are available at the Park Reference Desk.
Copies of the dystopian young adult novel, the Hunger Games, are available now at the Park Reference Desk. We will meet to discuss this book on May 7th.
On April 2nd, we will meet to discuss True Grit by Charles Portis. This Western is set in the 1800’s and tells the story of Mattie Ross, the fourteen-year-old who sets out to avenge her father’s death.
The May through August 2014 schedule is now out. Look for a copy with descriptions at either entrance. We will be discussing The Hunger Games in May, The Color of Water in June, Habits of the House in July, and War Dances in August.
The Crandall Library is closed today, so our discussion for Twelve Years a Slave has been postponed until next Wednesday. Thankfully, the Buddha in the Attic looks like a quick read. If anyone would like to get a jump on the reading, we have copies available at the Park Reference Desk. Be safe!
