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!
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!
Right now, it looks like we could get snow on Wednesday, so please call in advance to make sure that we are still meeting. I booked the Crandall Room for us for Wednesday, February 12th at 7pm in case we can’t meet on our normal day. Please note the slightly later start time. I hope to see everyone on Wednesday!
So tomorrow we’ll discuss Friendship Bread by Darien Gee, and I really meant to make the recipe, but I didn’t get the timing right. We will substitute banana bread in its place.
Unfortunately, Ms. Brady is unable to attend our book group this Wednesday, but we will discuss the book as planned! Also, remember that we will not meet in November, but the Library is hosting a special book discussion on Monday, November 5th at 7pm in the Crandall Room. Attendees will be discussing The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien.
Since we are closed for the holiday, the Wednesday Evening Book Group will meet on the following Wednesday. We will be discussing The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs. We have one copy left at the Park side Reference Desk, but more are on the way.
