Welcome Back!

1Q84-book-coverHi everyone! Welcome back after our 2 month holiday hiatus. We’ll be meeting tonight Tuesday 1/24/17 at 7:30 pm in Napper Tandy’s of Norwood to discuss “1Q84” by Haruki Murakami. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure this is the longest book I’ve ever read. Sweeping, meditative, fantastical, and chock-full of literary and sci-fi references, we’re going to have a lot to talk about! And please do come even if you haven’t finished yet – you’re probably not alone 🙂

Crooked-letter-crooked-letter-book-coverIf you can’t join us tonight, copies of February’s book and audiobook are ready to pick up at the Reference Desk. For Tuesday 2/28/17, we’ll be reading “Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter” by Tom Franklin. Set in rural Mississippi, this gritty Southern mystery was both nominated for and won a pile of crime/mystery awards. Plus, it’s plot-driven and under 300 pages – the sort of palate-cleanser we could all use after working through the heady tome “1Q84.” (Calgon, take me away!…)
