July 2016 Book DiscussionsPosted: July 8, 2016
The Tuesday Morning Group will meet at 10 am on July 19 to discuss Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart. This book, set in 1914 and 1915 in Paterson, New Jersey, is based on a true story. One morning, three sisters in a horse-drawn buggy are run down by a large black car driven by a ruthless silk factory owner, and their lives suddenly get a lot more interesting.
The Tuesday Evening Book Group will discuss The Oregon Trail by Rinker Buck at 7pm on July 26. Rinker and his brother Nick attempt the first crossing of the Oregon Trail in a covered wagon drawn by three mules in a century. Lots of history, humor, and adventure as two very different brothers tackle the challenges of the journey.
Copies of the books are available at the Adult and Teen Services Reference Desk. Both groups are taking August off, and will meet again in September, along with The Crime Readers. September titles will be announced in early August. I am considering a wide variety of titles for our fall book discussions.
