If you haven't read the book yet for this Saturday, Oct. 9, there is still time!  Stephen King's novella, Elevation, is only 146 pages and is a quick read.  Participants will meet in the community room of the Riverton Municipal Building from 10-11am. Masks are worn and the room is large enough for social distancing.

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.
