Book Club

We hope to see you on Tuesday, October 16 at 7:30pm for a discussion of The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce.  Location and other details will be emailed a few days before the meeting.   Copies of the book are available next to the library circulation desk.
 
Joining in on a Book Club meeting is a great opportunity to meet with other members in a pleasant, small-group atmosphere where new participants are warmly welcomed at any time. Our thanks go out to last month’s hostess, Doriane, for a fun kick-off to the club’s new year.  Our evening included discussion of the book, suggestions for future reads, and other general catching up.  Do you have a book to suggest, thoughts on meeting dates, or wish to host a meeting?  Please email one of the chairs, or post on the book club’s Facebook page.  Better yet, come to our next meeting!  We would love to have your thoughts and feedback.
 
About our current selection: 
 

The Music Shop is a story about good, ordinary people who take on forces too big for them. It's about falling in love and how hard it can be. And it's about music - how it can bring us together when we are divided and save us when all seems lost:   It's 1988. The CD has arrived. Sales of the shiny new disks are soaring on high streets in cities across the country. Meanwhile, down a dead-end street, Frank's music shop stands small and brightly lit, jam-packed with records of every kind. It attracts the lonely, the sleepless, the adrift. There is room for everyone. Frank has a gift for finding his customers the music they need. Into this shop arrives Ilse Brauchmann - practical, brave, well-heeled. Frank falls for this curious woman who always dresses in green. But Ilse's reasons for visiting the shop are not what they seem. Frank's passion for Ilse seems as misguided as his determination to save vinyl. How can a man so in tune with other people's needs be so incapable of helping himself? And what will it take to show he loves her?” -- Provided by publisher.
 
Looking ahead to November we will be reading Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate.
