This is the 9th anniversary of the book club! This meeting is our planning session for the upcoming year so start thinking of some great titles to share. Email to porlibadult@gmail.com or drop off your suggestions at the library so that they can be included on the voting ballot. The library staff will place holds on the titles so that members can see the books at the planning session. Due to the size of the group and time constraints, each person can booktalk 2 titles but you can suggest more titles if you like. Pizza, soda, and dessert will be served and we will vote for 11 titles.

Third Tuesday Book Club

Date: 
Tue, 02/16/2016 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Join us to discuss The Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman.  After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.
