Our next meeting is Tuesday, June 12 (note: this is the second Tuesday of the month), at 6:30 p.m. at the Crossings clubhouse (the Walnut Country HOA Clubhouse, 44965 S Larwin Ave, Concord, CA 94521). We’ll be discussing The Kill Artist, by Daniel Silva. A former Israeli-intelligence operative turned restorer of priceless works of art is being called back into the game to catch a terrorist bent on one last killing spree. What begins as a manhunt turns into a globe-spanning duel fueled by political intrigue and deep personal passions (from the publisher’s blurb).
July’s book is When the Floods Came by Clare Morrall. Set in a future Britain, ravaged by floods and a deadly virus, this novel is equal parts near-future dystopia, a tale of suspense, and a coming-of-age story. Roza’s family lives in a Birmingham tower block, relatively safe and comfortable, if isolated. Then a stranger arrives… The meeting to discuss the book will be on Tuesday, July 17.
In August we’ll be reading The Dictionary of Mutual Understanding by Jackie Copleton. When Amaterasu Takahashi opens the door of her Philadelphia home to a badly scarred man claiming to be the grandson she believed had died in the bombing of Nagasaki, she is forced to confront painful memories of the years in Japan before the war. Will Ama allow herself to believe in a miracle? (From the publisher’s blurb.) The meeting to discuss the book will be on Tuesday, August 21.
