On September 18 at 10 a.m., the Tuesday Morning Book Group will meet to discuss Jade Dragon Mountain, by Elsa Hart. This is a mystery set in southwest China in 1708, during a festival to celebrate a solar eclipse predicted by the emperor. Here’s my earlier review.
The Tuesday Evening Book Group will meet at 7 p.m. on September 25 to discuss How to Stop Time, by Matt Haig. Tom Hazard ages very, very slowly and his memories go back to Elizabethan England. My review is here.
The Crime Readers will meet at 7 p.m. at Home Run Inn Pizza in Darien on September 20 to discuss The Force, by Don Winslow, a novel of intrigue and corruption in the New York Police Department. The Crime Readers are co-sponsored by the Indian Prairie Public Library. Optional dinner is at 6 p.m.
Copies of the books will be available four weeks in advance at the Circulation Desk in the lobby.
