The Raytown Branch Adult Book Group will be reading Intervention by Robin Cook for their October meetings. Dr. Jack Stapleton is investigating the alternative medicine practices that his colleagues don't like. His questioning leads him to Shawn Doherty, an old classmate who is now a renowned archaeologist and biblical scholar. The book is a medical thriller with Da Vinci Code atmosphere.
For the month of October, we are reading The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff. The Kommandant's Girl takes place during WWII in Poland, and is the story of a young girl, the Jewish ghetto, and the resistance.
Parents, Do Your Children Love Talking About Books?
Do you have a young reader who loves to tell you about the books they have been reading? Then perhaps they’d like to come to the Children’s Book Club and discuss reading with their peers.
The Children’s Book Club here at the Excelsior Springs Branch meets on the second Monday of every month, discussing a selected book as a group. Book club starts at 7:00 p.m. and lasts approximately one hour.
In October, Thursday’s Mystery Book Club read Dead Days of Summerby Carolyn Hart. This is book #17 in the Death on Demand series. This is a light, cozy mystery, one that doesn’t require the reader to do a lot of thinking. It’s a quick, simple read.
Join an awesome group! Come to BookTalk at the Kearney Branch. On the first Friday of every month at 10:00 a.m., coffee and tea will be served and good company shared while we discuss each month’s book selection. On November 4th, that book will be One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.
