Community Book Group

Monday, November 14 at 11:15 AM – Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson – YMCA Community Center

snow-falling-on-cedars

Summary from Goodreads: “San Piedro Island, north of Puget Sound, is a place so isolated that no one who lives there can afford to make enemies. But in 1954 a local fisherman is found suspiciously drowned, and a Japanese American named Kabuo Miyamoto is charged with his murder. In the course of the ensuing trial, it becomes clear that what is at stake is more than a man’s guilt. For on San Piedro, memory grows as thickly as cedar trees and the fields of ripe strawberries – memories of a charmed love affair between a white boy and the Japanese girl who grew up to become Kabuo’s wife; memories of land desired, paid for, and lost. Above all, San Piedro is haunted by the memory of what happened to its Japanese residents during World War II, when an entire community was sent into exile while its neighbors watched.  

Paranormal Book Group

Saturday, November 19 at 10:30 AM – The Scarlet Gospels by Clive Barker  – Library Reading Room

scarlet-gospels

Summary from Goodreads: “The Scarlet Gospels takes readers back many years to the early days of two of Barker’s most iconic characters in a battle of good and evil as old as time: The long-beleaguered detective Harry D’Amour, investigator of all supernatural, magical, and malevolent crimes faces off against his formidable, and intensely evil rival, Pinhead, the priest of hell. Barker devotees have been waiting for The Scarlet Gospels with bated breath for years, and it’s everything they’ve begged for and more. Bloody, terrifying, and brilliantly complex, fans and newcomers alike will not be disappointed by the epic, visionary tale that is The Scarlet Gospels . Barker’s horror will make your worst nightmares seem like bedtime stories. The Gospels are coming. Are you ready?”

Please note that Paranormal Book Group will be meeting a week early due to Thanksgiving.
