Join the West U book discussion group Wednesday May 4 at 11 AM for a discussion of the book The Mockingbird Next Door, by Marja Mills. Author Mills sought an interview with the reclusive author Harper Lee. Over the years the 2 women became friends. The Mockingbird Next Door brings Harper Lee and her world to full life.
The book discussion group meets at the Senior Center next door to the Library.
“A marvel of a first novel. Verghese’s generosity of spirit is beautifully embodied in this gripping family saga that brings mid-century Ethiopia to vivid life. The practice of medicine is like a spiritual calling in this book, and the unforgettable people at its center bring passion and nobility—not to mention humor and humility—to the ancient art, while living an unforgettable story of love and betrayal and forgiveness. It’s wonderful.” —Ann Packer

Please join us to discuss The Whites, by Richard Price writing as Harry Brandt.
Wednesday, March 2, 2016.
“Riveting… [Price] has a knack for using…detective work the way John le Carré has used spy stories and tradecraft, as a framework on which to build complex investigations into the human soul... No one these days writes with more kinetic energy or more hard-boiled verve… A gripping police procedural and an affecting study in character and fate.” ―Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
