New to our program lineup is Online Book Club! Here’s how it works:
Read the monthly selection (books are available at the circulation desk) and join in the conversation at www.librarything.com by creating a free user account and joining our group Alliance Public Library Online Book Club. You will then be able to participate in the conversation via the online group forum – it’s that easy! We will also have a face-to-face discussion the last Thursday of every month in the library at 6:30 p.m. for those who would like to meet in person as well!
September’s book is Life of Pi by Yann Martel. It has won numerous literary awards and should make for a lively discussion!
Pi Patel, having spent an idyllic childhood in Pondicherry, India as the son of a zookeeper, sets off with his family at the age of sixteen to start anew in Canada. But his life takes a marvelous turn when their ship sinks in the Pacific, leaving him adrift on a raft with a 450-pound Bengal tiger for company.
Online Book Club is being offered in addition to our Traditional Book Club, which meets the last Tuesday and Thursday of each month. For September, they will be reading The Devil’s Advocate by Morris West.
