The Crossings Book Club – Updated Schedule for April and May

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Crossings clubhouse is temporarily closed. We have tentatively pushed the next two meetings ahead a month — but they may have to be rescheduled again, so check back for updates.

The next meeting of the Crossings Book Club is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 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 Point Reyes Sheriff’s Calls by Susanna Solomon, a collection of short stories inspired by Sheriff’s calls published in the author’s favorite local newspaper, the Point Reyes Light.  The imaginary denizens having run-ins with the law include Fred, a “charmingly confused pedestrian,” his wife, “the cantankerous but loving Mildred; Doris, the local hairdresser, the voluptuous Officer Kettleman and more.” [Publisher's blurb].

In May we’ll be reading The Library Book by Susan Orlean. Called a “dazzling love letter to a beloved institution,” Orlean weaves her love of books and reading into the investigation of the 1986 Los Angeles Public library fire, a disastrous blaze that destroyed four hundred thousand books and damaged almost twice as many more, and tells a riveting history of the library, its librarians and its loyal patrons. The meeting to discuss the book will be on Tuesday, May 19.
