Book Discussion Selections for August

Join us for our August Book Discussions! These discussions are open to the public, and you don't need to register in advance. Just read the book and come prepared to meet new people and take part in a lively discussion.

The Morning Book Club will meet on Tuesday, August 27 at 10:00 a.m. to discuss Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Amazon says, "Marriage can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.

The Evening Book Club will meet on Wednesday, August 21 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss City of Women by David R. Gillham. Amazon says, "It is 1943—the height of the Second World War. With the men away at the front, Berlin has become a city of women. On the surface, Sigrid Schröder is the model German soldier’s wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime. But behind this façade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman of passion who dreams of her former Jewish lover, now lost in the chaos of the war. But Sigrid is not the only one with secrets."
