This month, Spalding Library’s book club members are reading “The Closers” by bestselling mystery writer Michael Connelly.
He walked away from the job three years ago. But Harry Bosch cannot resist the call to join the elite Open/Unsolved Unit. His mission: solve murders whose investigations were flawed, stalled, or abandoned to L.A.’s tides of crime. With some people openly rooting for his failure, Harry catches the case of a teenager dragged off to her death on Oat Mountain, and traces the DNA on the murder weapon to a small-time criminal. But something bigger and darker beckons, and Harry must battle to fit all the pieces together. Shaking cages and rattling ghosts, he will push the rules to the limit-and expose the kind of truth that shatters lives, ends careers, and keeps the dead whispering in the night….( from amazon.com)

We will be discussing the New York Times Bestseller book, “Once Upon A Town: The Miracle Of The North Platte Canteen” by author Bob Greene. While a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, Bob Greene stumbled onto story about the razing of the railroad depot in North Platte, Nebraska. It led him on a fact-finding trip to this small town, and then on to many interviews with people who had lived there during World War II, and also men who had traveled through on the troop trains. He wound up writing an entire book about the phenomenon of the North Platte Canteen. Join us at the library, for a lively discussion about this book on Monday, January 2nd at 5:00p.m. All are welcome!!
Bestselling author Janet Evanovich’s latest book in her Stephanie Plum series “Turbo Twenty-Three”has been recently added to the library’s adult fiction collection.” In this newest adventure, Stephanie is up to her usual avoidance of commitment with Joe (and he’s not pushing it!), her confusion with Ranger (and he’s not helping!) and, then, of course, there’s Lula, who is a whole subset of craziness all on her own. The mystery is frozen in bafflement and something I bet you’ve never read or seen anywhere else. Throw in a little Grandma Mazur nuttiness and you have another winner. And it all revolves around ice cream. How can you go wrong?
