The Tuesday Morning book group will meet at 10 a.m. on June 19 to discuss The Dry, by Jane Harper. This is a contemporary mystery set in a small town in Victoria, Australia, about five hours from Melbourne, during a drought. Financial investigator Aaron Falk is back in town for a funeral and gets caught up in a murder investigation. My earlier review is here.
On June 26, The Tuesday Evening group will meet at 7 p.m. to discuss The Stars are Fire, by Anita Shreve. Also set during a drought, but on the coast of Maine in 1947. Young mother Grace Holland has to protect her family when her husband volunteers as a fire fighter in a nearby town. Here’s my earlier review.
If you are participating in the Summer Reading Safari, attending a book discussion gets you an extra entry to earn a prize.
The Crime Readers are taking the summer off, and will meet again in September.
Happy summer reading! And please let me know if you have suggestions for fall or winter book discussions.
