On the one hand, there’s Big Brother…

Security-book-cover…and on the other, there’s “Security.” The first half of this mystery/thriller reads like the script to a horror movie, and the second half reads like a stream of consciousness philosophical rambling, with the middle transition serving up a steamy romance. We’re sure to have an interesting discussion this evening at Napper Tandy’s! Meet us on the left-hand-side bar at 7:30 pm.

Station-eleven-book-coverFor November, we’ll be reading another member-chosen book: “Station Eleven” by Emily St. John Mandel. This National Book Award Finalist, and winner of many other book awards, is science fiction-lite set in a post-apocalyptic world. The story moves back and forth through time, exploring the world before, during, and after the collapse of civilization. What does the sudden heart attack and death of a Hollywood Shakespearean  actor have to do with the onset of a sudden pandemic flu? And how can a future traveling troupe of Shakespearean actor/musicians save both art and humanity? And what’s the deal with this grave-digging prophet guy? This novel about truth, beauty, and survival looks good.

Copies of the book and audiobook are available to pick up at the Reference Desk. The ebook and e-audiobook are available through Overdrive, but you’ll want to place a hold soon in order to get it in time. We meet on Tuesday November 22 at 7:30 pm – see you then!
