Book Clubs

This week is Book Club week at the Ligonier Valley Library!

Titles and Tea will meet on Wednesday, December 12 at 2:00 pm to discuss “If the Creek Don’t Rise” by Leah Weiss.

“Sadie Blue has been a wife for fifteen days. That’s long enough to know she should have never hitched herself to Roy Tupkin, even with the baby.

Sadie is desperate to make her own mark on the world, but in remote Appalachia, a ticket out of town is hard to come by, and hope often gets stomped out.  When a stranger sweeps into Baines Creek and knocks things off kilter, Sadie finds herself with an unexpected lifeline…if she can just figure out how to use it.

This intimate insight into a fiercely proud, tenacious community unfolds through the voices of the forgotten folks of Baines Creek. With a colorful cast of characters that each contribute a new perspective.” — Description from Amazon.

Death in the Stacks – A Mystery Book Discussion Group will meet on Friday, December 14 at 11:45 am to celebrate the holidays with a fun book, “Dangerous Minds” by Janet Evanovich.

“Buddhist monk Wayan Bagus lost his island of solitude and wants to get it back. The island was about two hundred miles north of Samoa. It had a mountain, beaches, a rain forest and a volcano. And now it’s gone. Poof! Vanished without a trace.

Brilliant and boyishly charming, Emerson Knight likes nothing better than solving an unsolvable, improbable mystery. And finding a missing island is better than Christmas morning in the Knight household. When clues lead to a dark and sinister secret that is being guarded by the National Park Service, Emerson will need to assemble a crack team for help. Since a crack team isn’t available, he enlists Riley Moon and his cousin Vernon. Riley Moon has a Harvard business degree and can shoot the eyes out of a grasshopper at fifty feet, but she can’t figure out how to escape the vortex of Emerson Knight’s odd life. Vernon has been Emerson’s loyal and enthusiastic partner in crime since childhood. He now lives in an RV behind Emerson’s house.

Together, this ragtag, mismatched trio will embark on a worldwide investigation that will expose a conspiracy one hundred yeas in the making.” — Description from book jacket.
