The Pageturners Library Book Club at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library will discuss several different books when it meets Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 10:15 a.m. in the Community Room.
Members are asked to bring in and review books that would make good holiday gifts. The club does not meet during December.
Beginning in January, however, the Pageturners will begin a new series of books as part of the Let’s Talk About It (LTAI) program with books provided by Idaho Commission for Libraries.
LTAI provides 25 copies of each of the books to be discussed by scholars provided by the Idaho Humanities Council. The program is also sponsored by the US Bancorp Foundation and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The local book club also receives funding from the Friends of the Library.
The new series is based on the theme “The Humanity of Science and Technology.” All discussions begin at 10:15 a.m. the fourth Tuesday of the month. Discussion dates, titles, authors, and discussion scholars include:
►Jan. 22: “Born in Africa” by Martin Meredith, Nancy Casey.
►Feb. 26: “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot, Gary Williams.
►March 26: “Physics of the Impossible” by Michio Kaku, Nancy Casey.
►April 23: “The Control of Nature” by John McPhee, Jennifer Ladino.
►May 28: “A Briefer History of Time” by Stephen Hawking.
All Pageturner Library Book Club discussions are open to any adult reader at no charge and no registration is required.
Books, along with discussion materials, can be checked out by visiting the library’s Research and Information Desk.
