Saturday, February 4 at 10:30 AM – Knitting Bones by Monica Ferris- Library Reading Room

Summary from Goodreads: “The stitchers of the Embroiderers Guild are thrilled to have raised over $20,000 for charity-but they’re less pleased when the representative who accepts the check disappears with it. After breaking her leg in a fall from a horse, Betsy’s confined to her apartment and loopy on pain killers-she can’t possibly investigate. But Godwin, her store manager, insists that he can do the legwork. Little do they know that a man across town has a similar injury-and he too is wondering what happened to that check. Betsy and Godwin have got to figure it out first, or it’ll be a bad break for everyone. “

Community Book Group

Monday,February 13 at 11:15 AM – The Known World by Edward P. Jones – YMCA Community Center

Summary from Goodreads:”Henry Townsend, a black farmer, bootmaker, and former slave, has a fondness for Paradise Lost and an unusual mentor—William Robbins, perhaps the most powerful man in antebellum Virginia’s Manchester County. Under Robbins’s tutelage, Henry becomes proprietor of his own plantation—as well as of his own slaves. When he dies, his widow Caldonia, succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart at their plantation: slaves take to escaping under the cover of night, and families who had once found love beneath the weight of slavery begin to betray one another. Beyond the Townsend estate, the known world also unravels: low-paid white patrollers stand watch as slave “speculators” sell free black people into slavery, and rumors of slave rebellions set white families against slaves who have served them for years.”

Paranormal Book Group

Saturday, February 25 at 10:30 AM – Parasite by Mira Grant  – Library Reading Room

Summary from Goodreads: “A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.

We owe our good health to a humble parasite – a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system – even secretes designer drugs. It’s been successful beyond the scientists’ wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.

But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives…and will do anything to get them.”
