The Riverton Area Book Club has picked Dark Matter by Blake Crouch as its choice for the September 21 meeting. In this thriller family man Jason Dessen is abducted and given the chance to re-do his life in an alternative reality, one in which he is a prize-winning genius in science, not an "ordinary" college professor married with a son. Which life is Jason's real one and which is the dream? How and why has his life taken this alternate trajectory?
In addition to this suspenseful New York Times bestseller, Crouch has written the Wayward Pines trilogy (which became a series on the FOX network) and co-created the TNT show "Good Behavior."
The book club meets from 10-11am at the Riverton Village Library the third Saturday of each month (with the exception of December). For further information call the library at 217-629-6353.
