I have been reading -but for two book clubs. Some books I have had to get through Inter Library Loan, as we [Prince Township Public Library] weed our books with a ten year publishing date. Prince Book club read Full Disclosure by retired justice Beverley McLachlin. It was received with mixed reviews. There were many characters and "Canadian' references. Our judicial courts are different than what we see on American T.V.
The next book club is on Thursday, October, 25th and we are reading Seven Fallen Feathers by Tanya Talaga. We will also read Half Breed by Maria Campbell. These are both Canadian authors and non fiction.
Our November selection is Promise by Minrose Gwin and will be held in the afternoon at 2:00 p.m. On Nov. 28th. This is a creative non fiction. The event really took place, (the tornado in Tupulo Miss.,) as you can see by the family photographs. But the author has created the story. If you can join us to discuss these books, come in. They are free. Enjoy and expand your mind.
Until next time,
Another debut novel is BROKEN PLACES, A Chicago Mystery by Tracy Clark. I couldn’t put this one down! After nearly losing her life as a police officer, Cass turns to being a P.I. with hopes that this will be “ safer”. A very fast paced easily read novel.
Fran B. has added her pick in LIAR’S CANDLE by August Thomas. This is her debut espionage novel set in Turkey, a country that the author is very familiar with as she travelled and studied in Turkey as the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship. If you like a James Bond type of story, this one’s for you with a young heroine Penny Kessler, discovering that her own government wants her dead.
I hope that you are enjoying the summer and have been reading as much as I have. This summer I have chosen quite a few new to us authors or debut novels for our collection. Some are from the U.K., Australia, as well as the U.S.A.
Rita reads a lot. So we make her talk about it online.
