Book Discussion Group
The Book Discussion Group meets the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.

March 2017 Book Discussion Group Recommendation:

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes. Winner of the Man Booker Prize; being made into a movie. A divorced man gets a letter that he has been left a diary. His memory of the events in the diary is so different from how he remembers them. Beautifully written

Citizen Scientist: Searching for Heroes and Hope in the Age of Extinction by Mary Ellen Hannibal (NonFiction). The role that citizens have played in scientific inquiry from volunteers who do animal surveys to Darwin. The author also deals with the terminal illness of a parent.

The Genius of Birds by Ackerman (Non-Fiction). Ackerman dispels the concept of “birdbrain” as a put-down as she explores the now better understood extraordinary abilities of birds as navigators, communicators, and tool users.

Justice Hall by Laurie E. King. Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series (15 novels total). This book is recommended for lovers of Downton Abbey.

My Father and Atticus Finch: A Lawyer’s Fight for Justice in 1930s Alabama by Joseph Madison Beck. Memoir by the son of a lawyer who defended a black man accused of raping a white woman. This may have been the case that inspired Harper Lee to write To Kill a Mockingbird.

Days Without End by Sebastian Barry. Thomas, an Irish immigrant fights in the Indian and Civil Wars. He develops an intimate relationship with Handsome John Cole that lasts a lifetime. Gorgeous writing that contrasts the carnage of war with the delicate strength of love.
