So, “early next week” became “early two weeks from now…” Sorry, folks. However, I’ve got dates, I’ve got times, I’ve got titles…here’s what’s we’re going to be buzzing about in Lawrenceville this spring.
Each month we’ll meet twice to discuss two related titles: an old favorite and something a little more off-beat. Everyone’s welcome to come to one discussion – or the other – or both! Copies of each month’s titles will be available for check-out at CLP – Lawrenceville.
(Click on the dates to register!)
Pairing One: Cooks and Cooking
The captivating story of Julia Child’s years in France, where she fell in love with French food and found “her true calling.”
This follow-up to Julie and Julia moves beyond French cooking and into butchery and heartbreak.
Pairing Two: Dead or Alive?
Scientist Victor Frankenstein creates a large and powerful creature in the likeness of man, but is disgusted by his own creation and he abandons the being to fend for itself.
Twenty years after the zombie rising, bloggers Shaun and Georgia Mason are chasing stories that may not only change the face of American politics but also reveal the truth behind the infected.
**Books will also be available for purchase at the store.**
Pairing Three: A Woman’s World?
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, once the United States, an oppressive world where women are no longer allowed to read and are valued only as long as they are viable for reproduction.
In the near future, prisoners are genetically modified, not imprisoned. Hannah is a Red: for having an abortion, she has been forever marked as the most heinous type of criminal. Her road to redemption and to safety forces her to question everything she’s ever believed.
** Please note special date. Discussion will be held in beer garden, weather permitting. **
