NEXT MEETING:  Tuesday –December 7, 2022

7 PM, Moke Hill Library/Archives

 December 7, 2021, 7 PM. Standing in the Rainbow, by Fannie Flagg.   From the author of “Fried Green Tomatoes….”, comes another story of richly drawn characters from the Missouri heartland.  Spanning from 1946 to the present, middle class and small town life are revealed though a cast of wacky and endearing characters. Bound together by Dorothy Smith’s ½-hour radio show, daily doings are chronicled in this time of optimism and prosperity.  It is a pleasurable dive into the reliably funny and heartfelt world of Fanny Flagg.

January 4, 2022, 7 PM.  Anansi Boys, by Neil Gaiman.  Fat Charlie Nancy’s normal life ended the moment his father dropped dead on a Florida karaoke stage.  Charlie didn’t know his dad was a god or that he had a brother.  Now brother Spider is on his doorstep, about to make Fat Charlie’s life more interesting … and a lot more dangerous.  Thrilling, spooky, delightful, and funny.  Best-selling British author Gaiman is famed for his fantasy fiction that is at once thought-provoking, mind boggling, brilliant, and absurd.

February 1, 2022, 7 PM.  The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton.  A novel weaving threads from dark fairy tales, a secret garden, an aristocratic family, and a mystery.  On the eve of WWI, a little girl is found abandoned on a ship to Australia.  It is decades later on the Cornish coast that her granddaughter, Cassandra, follows a twisted trail find the truth about their family history.  A captivating story that jumps times and continents treating readers to a well-written and satisfying adventure.
