Book Clubs--upcoming meetings

On Tuesday, May 10, at 6:30 p.m., meeting at the Central Library, the French Language Book Club will discuss Le Quatrième Mur, by Sorj Chalandon.

Please join the Brown Bag Book Club on Tuesday, May 17, when it meets at noon at the Central Library The book the club will read and discuss is The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah.

The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.

Please be aware, should you find it hard to get a copy to read, that Burbank Public Library also offers this title in large print, as an audio book, and for your e-reader.

Later that same day, the Scene of the Crime Mystery Book Club meets at 7:00 p.m., in the story time room at Buena Vista. That club will read and discuss Wicked Autumnby G. M. Malliet.

Max Tudor has adapted well to his post as vicar of St. Edwold's in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip. The quiet village seems the perfect home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past as an MI5 agent. Now he has found a measure of peace among urban escapees and yoga practitioners, artists and crafters and New Agers. But this new-found serenity is quickly shattered when the highly vocal and unpopular president of the Women's Institute turns up dead at the Harvest Fayre. The death looks like an accident, but Max's training as a former agent kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play...
