February 2018 Book Discussions

The Tuesday Morning Book Group will meet at 10 am on February 20 to discuss I Will Send Rain, by Rae Meadows, a novel set in Oklahoma during the early years of the Dust Bowl. I found it melancholy in tone rather than bleak, with richly drawn characters and lyrical writing. Here’s my earlier review.

On February 27 at 7 pm, the Tuesday Evening Book Group will discuss A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Kline, a historical novel by the author of The Orphan Train. Christina Olson has always lived in her family’s farmhouse in coastal Maine. A young Andrew Wyeth meets the family and paints his famous painting “Christina’s World”. My review is here.

The Crime Readers will discuss the thriller Never Go Back by Lee Child at 7 pm on Thursday, February 15. Co-sponsored by the Indian Prairie Public Library, the Crime Readers meet at Home Run Inn Pizza in Darien, and gather at 6 pm for an optional dinner.

Copies of the books are available at the Adult & Teen Services Reference Desk.
