Thanks to everyone who came to our great discussion of Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys!
Next time we’ll be talking about a classic, Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume:
Davey Wexler has never felt so alone. Her father has just been killed—shot in a holdup at the 7-Eleven near their home. And now her mother has transplanted her and her little brother, Jason, to Los Alamos, New Mexico, to stay with family and recover.
But Davey is withdrawn, full of rage and fear and loneliness. Then one day, while exploring a canyon, she meets an older boy who calls himself Wolf. Wolf is the only one who understands her—the only one who can read her sad eyes. And he is the one who helps her realize that she must find a way to move forward with her life.
Davey is one of Judy Blume’s most hauntingly true human beings, capturing the deep ways a person can change that can’t be seen—only felt.
Copies of the book are available at the front desk now.
We’ll meet on September 14 at 7pm in the 4th floor conference room. Please note that from now until the end of the year many of our meetings won’t be on the 3rd Wednesday because of holidays and professional conferences, so be sure to check our flyers or book group page for exact dates.
