Just wanted to remind you that the Field Notes Book Club is having its first meeting on September 19 (that’s a Saturday) from 11:00 till 12:30. We will be discussing the wonderful book Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann, and there is still plenty of time to come in, get a copy of the book from the library (just ask at the desk) and read it before the 19th.
The book itself is a fascinating read, a multifaceted portrait of a now-gone New York (the 1970’s now seem as far in the past as the Civil War sometimes) with characters from all walks of life interacting in surprising and satisfying ways.
There will be lively discussion (I’ll be leading it), and refreshments as well. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning, getting to know your fellow readers and library patrons while talking about interesting literature. Come in and sign up! There’s still time!
