“Stories spin within stories in this spellbinding novel of avarice, love, and revenge….Readers should never underestimate an Atwood heroine’s capacity for self-discipline and subterfuge….Atwood, whose wit, metaphorical descriptions, and elegant characterizations are breathtaking in their beauty and resonance, weaves an intriguing trifurcate narrative.” -Booklist
The Staff Picks Book Group will be meeting next Wednesday, August 21, to discuss The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. We will meet in the Robbins Library Conference Room (fourth floor) at 7pm. All are welcome, whether you’ve finished reading or not (be warned, though – we will be discussing the ending!).
For those who want to get a jump on next month’s book, we’ll be reading The Glory of Their Times: The Story of the Early Days of Baseball Told By The Men Who Played It by Lawrence Ritter. The meeting will be Wednesday, September 18 at the Fox Branch at 7pm. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the circulation desk soon, or you can request a copy through the catalog.
