Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Dashing through the snowTitle to be discussed: Dashing through the snow by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, December 13, 6:30 pm.  Summary: "In the picturesque village of Branscombe, New Hampshire, the townsfolk are preparing for the first Festival of Joy. The night before the festival begins, a group of employees at the local market learn that they have won $160 million in the lottery. One of their co-workers, Duncan, decided at the last minute, on the advice of a pair of crooks masquerading as financial advisers, not to play. Then he goes missing. A second winning lottery ticket was purchased in the next town, but the winner hasn't come forward. Could Duncan have secretly bought it? Alvirah Meehan, the amateur sleuth, and private investigator Regan Reilly have arrived in Branscombe for the festival. They are just the people to find out what is amiss. As they dig beneath the surface, they find that life in Branscombe is not as tranquil as it appears."

Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Our souls at nightTitle to be discussed: Our souls at night by Kent Haruf.  Date of meeting: November 8, 6:30 pm. Summary: In the familiar setting of Holt, Colorado, home to all of Kent Haruf's inimitable fiction, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades. Addie and Louis have long been living alone in houses now empty of family, the nights so terribly lonely, especially with no one to talk with. Their brave adventures—their pleasures and their difficulties—are hugely involving and truly resonant, making "Our souls at night" the perfect final installment to this beloved writer's enduring contribution to American literature.

The Tuesday Evening Book Club will discuss Redeployment by Phil Klay on November 8th @ 7:00pm.

Persons who love to read and discuss what they have read join in informal conversation. Everyone is welcome. The selection for November will be Redeployment by Phil Klay
