The Page Turners
This club typically meets on the second Thursday of the month
The meeting is on September 9 at 6 p.m. in the library.
Every month The Page Turners meet to discuss the latest and greatest works of fiction. Books are available for check out from the library.
This month we will be reading Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. According to goodreads.com, everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the real reason why they split at the absolute height of their popularity…until now. Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go-Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.
A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up.
Booked On Crime
This club typically meets on the fourth Thursday of the month
The meeting is on September 23 at 6 p.m. in the library.
Every month Booked on Crime meets to discuss books of crime, passion, and mystery. Books are available for check out from the library.
This month we will be reading Dead Girls by Alice Bolin. According to goodreads.com, in her debut collection, Alice Bolin turns a critical eye to literature and pop culture, the way media consumption reflects American society, and her own place within it. From essays on Joan Didion and James Baldwin to Twin Peaks, Britney Spears, and Serial, Bolin illuminates our widespread obsession with women who are abused, killed, and disenfranchised, and whose bodies (dead and alive) are used as props to bolster a man’s story.
A collection of poignant, perceptive essays that expertly blends the personal and political in an exploration of American culture through the lens of our obsession with dead women.
