Book Club - Saturday, July 17

Back to the third Saturday of the month, July 17 is the next book club meeting. The group will talk about Sold on a Monday, by Kristina McMorris and published in 2018.  McMorris was inspired to write this book after seeing a 1948 photo of children offered up for sale and reading a followup article. In her historical fiction, a reporter in 1931 snaps a similar photo, not intended for publication but which becomes a news item with devastating consequences.The book club meets from 10-11am in the community room of the Riverton Municipal Building.

Book Club - June 26

The June 26 book selected for the book club is Saving Fish from Drowning by Amy Tan. Tan recently appeared in a film, "Unintended Memoir," (PBS) about her life and career, including personal photos, home movies, animation, and interviews. Many of her writings were inspired by Tan's experiences; this novel, her sixth work, is about a group of American tourists who travel to China and Burma. We celebrate author Amy Tan in May, which is Asian American/Pacific Island Heritage month. 

Book Club - May 15th

Saturday, May 15, is the next meeting for the book club. The selection is The Little Paris Bookshop, by Nina George, a German author. She is an advocate for writers and women's rights and has worked as a cop reporter, free lance journalist, and managing editor for a number of publications. The main character, Monsieur Jean Perdu, is known for his "Literary Apothecary." He sells books from a barge on the River Seine in Paris. But he is no ordinary bookseller; Perdu has insight into what his patrons need to improve their lives and he prescribes books accordingly.
