January 2017 Book DiscussionsPosted: December 27, 2016
In January, the Tuesday Morning Book Group will meet at 10am on January 17 to discuss The Marriage of Opposites, by Alice Hoffman, a biographical novel about Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, and his parents, set on the island of St. Thomas and in Paris. Here’s my review.
The Tuesday Evening Book Group will discuss a memoir, Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found, by Rebecca Alexander. They will meet at 7 pm on January 24. When she was 19, Rebecca learned that she was gradually going deaf and blind. Undaunted, Rebecca became a psychotherapist, a spin instructor, and since finishing her memoir, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Here’s my recent review.
The Crime Readers will be discussing The Tenderness of Wolves, by Stef Penney at 7 pm on Thursday, January 19, at Home Run Inn Pizza in Darien. The Crime Readers is co-sponsored by the Indian Prairie Public Library. Meet for optional dinner at 6 pm. Their selection is an award-winning historical novel set in the winter of 1867, on the Canadian frontier.
Copies of all three books are available at the Adult & Teen Services Reference Desk.
