Love to read? Want to talk about it? Join the Rockin’ Readers Book Group! We meet at the Library at 10:30 am on the 2nd Friday of each month. After our “official” discussion has ended, we can be found at a local restaurant continuing the discussion, or discussing other common interests. Occasionally, we hold our discussions at a member’s home or at a local restaurant. As you can see from the above photo, we are a friendly group who enjoy each other’s company. New participants and viewpoints are always welcome.
Please call Pam with any questions at (707) 529-7974. The selection for May is listed below.
Rockin’ Readers’ May 12th Selection:
The Mermaids Singing by Lisa Carey
Book Description: Pub 11/6/2001; Average Review: 4.2 out of 5 stars
There is an island off the west coast of Ireland called Inis Muruch—the Island of the Mermaids—a world where myth is more powerful than truth, and love can overcome even death. It is here that Lisa Carey sets her lyrical and sensual first novel, weaving together the voices and lives of three generations of Irish and Irish-American women.
Years ago, the fierce and beautiful Grace stole away from the island with her small daughter, Gráinne, unable to bear its isolation. Now Gráinne, is motherless at fifteen, and a grandmother she has never met has come to take her back. Her heart is pulled between a life in which she no longer belongs and a family she cannot remember. But only on Inis Muruch can she begin to understand the forces that have torn her family apart.
The Rockin’ Readers Book Group meets once a month on the second Friday of the month at 10:30 AM at the Rim Community Library and usually go to lunch in the area and continue their discussions. They welcome new members. Grab a book and join in the discussion!
