Our next meeting is Tuesday, April 17 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 Oregon Trail: A New American Journey, by Rinker Buck. Buck, with his brother Nick and a Jack Russell terrier named Olive Oyl, traveled the length of the Oregon Trail in a covered wagon with a team of mules. The book is part travelogue of “a majestic journey across the West, a significant work of history, and a moving personal saga” (from the publisher’s blurb).
In May we’ll be reading Artemis, by Andy Weir, author of the popular science fiction novel and film The Martian. His new book is a fast-paced science fiction heist story. The novel takes place in the “late 2080s and is set in Artemis, the first and only city on the moon. It follows the life of porter and smuggler Jasmine ‘Jazz’ Bashara as she gets caught up in a conspiracy for control of the city” (Wikipedia). The meeting to discuss the book will be on Tuesday, May 15.
