Calling all mystery fans! Let's solve it together!
Join us on the grass beside the library for Mystery Book Club! Bring your own lawn chairs, bug spray, and tea/coffee/water.
In the event of inclement weather, the book club will move indoors. Face masks are encouraged for participation in programs, as we may not always be able to maintain physical distance.
For November's meeting, we will be discussing The Glass Hotel, by Emily St. John Mandel. Place a request or pick up a copy at the library.
"Vincent is a bartender at the Hotel Caiette, a five-star glass and cedar palace on the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island. New York financier Jonathan Alkaitis owns the hotel. When he passes Vincent his card with a tip, it's the beginning of their life together. That same day, Vincent's half-brother, Paul, scrawls a note on the windowed wall of the hotel: "Why don't you swallow broken glass." Leon Prevant, a shipping executive for a company called Neptune-Avramidis, sees the note from the hotel bar and is shaken to his core. Thirteen years later Vincent mysteriously disappears from the deck of a Neptune-Avramidis ship.
Weaving together the lives of these characters, The Glass Hotel moves between the ship, the towers of Manhattan, and the wilderness of remote British Columbia, painting a breathtaking picture of greed and guilt, fantasy and delusion, art and the ghosts of our pasts." - http://www.emilymandel.com/glasshotel.html
