February and March Book Discussions

Upcoming Book Discussions! Each meeting is 6:30-7:30 p.m.

February 21 .. The new Tom Hanks movie is A Man Called Otto, but before the Otto adaption, it was the wonderful Ove in Fredrik Backman’s A Man Called Ove. With searching for the correct pronounciation of the Swedish Ove’s name, we will use ooh-ve. Do join us!

March 21 .. Jeeves was the trusted valet of Bertie Wooster in the books by P. G. Wodehouse. We will read a new Jeeves book written as an homage to the original series. Our book is Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks.

November 15 .. We will visit the #1 book in Amazon’s category of Classic Action & Adventure: The Count of Monte Cristo written by Alexander Dumas in the edition translated by Robin Buss.

Short Stories at your fingertips!

The positive response to a small display of short stories has led to this: a permanent section for the short story books. The stories may be science fiction, mysterious, or romantic, but the common factor is books full of separate, and quick(!), reads.

When you search the catalog, SHORT in front of the call number indicates the titles you will find here.
