See What the Library’s Book Clubs for Adults Have in Store for October
This October, check out either of the Library’s two Book Clubs for adults. The After-Dark Book Club meets on Thursday, October 4 at 7:30 p.m., and the 2nd-Friday Book Club meets on Friday, October 12 at 10:30 a.m. Both clubs are open to anyone who wants to join at any time, and there is no ongoing obligation.
Here is what the clubs have in store for October:
The After-Dark Book Club will be discussing The Children Act by Ian McEwan. This 2014 novel centers around a court case involving Jehovah’s Witnesses denying medical treatment to their dying teenage son, and the middle aged female judge who must decide the case.
The 2nd-Friday Book Club will discuss Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. This novel is about a Chinese-American family living in Ohio in the 1970s, and all that follows when favorite child Lydia is found dead in a local lake. It is described as, “A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.”
