October Pageturners Book Club
The Pageturners Library Book Club will be meeting in the community room in October. The discussion will also be available on Zoom, and a recording will be available after the event with closed captioning. Masks will be required to attend the program in person.
The book club is reading “The Library Book” by Susan Orlean and will discuss the book Wednesday, October 27th at 10:15 a.m. Book club discussions are open to any adult reader at no charge. Check out a copy of the selection by visiting the library’s Research and Information Desk, or by calling for curbside pickup.
“In the ‘exquisitely written, consistently entertaining’ (The New York Times) The Library Book, Orlean chronicles the LAPL fire and its aftermath to showcase the larger, crucial role that libraries play in our lives; delves into the evolution of libraries; brings each department of the library to vivid life; studies arson and attempts to burn a copy of a book herself; and reexamines the case of Harry Peak, the blond-haired actor long suspected of setting fire to the LAPL more than thirty years ago.” (Simon and Schuster)
