On Tuesday, April 21, the Tuesday Morning Book Group will be discussion Lives in Ruins by Marilyn Johnson. This is a non-fiction book about the lives of archaeologists, with chapters set in the Caribbean, Peru, South Dakota, and at many other archaeological sites. Here is my earlier review. Please note: we are meeting in the library’s 2nd floor Mahlke Meeting Room, not at the Park District, and not in Group Study Room 2
On Tuesday, April 28, the Tuesday Evening Book Group will be discussing The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri, set in Calcutta, India and Rhode Island, moving from the 1960s to the present, focusing on two brothers and the scholarly woman they both love, and how they react very differently to political upheaval and the duties expected of them by their family. This group is also meeting in the 2nd floor Mahlke Meeting Room, not at the Park District.
The Crime Readers are meeting at Home Run Inn Pizza in Darien at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 16 to discuss The Laughing Policeman by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo. This award-winning police procedural is set in Sweden in 1968. Optional dinner is at 6:00 p.m. The group is co-sponsored by the Indian Prairie Public Library.
Copies of all three titles are available now at the Adult/Young Adult Reference Desk.
