Our book for December is The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi, a science fiction story about the scarcity of water in the Southwest United States... just in time for the Holidays.
We will meet at Capital Teas at 731 8th St. SE - many thanks to our Barracks Row neighbors for hosting us.
The Friends of the Southwest Library will be holding a Holiday Book Sale from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
All proceeds go to equipment and programming needs for the Southwest Library. Most books are $1 or less. Shop for fun and inexpensive stocking stuffers (e.g. $.25 pocket paperbacks) and help the Southwest neighborhood too!
Our first book of the new year will be the lauded Louise Erdrich's most recent title LaRose, a huanting tale of justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in Native American culture.
Join us for rousing discussions on a variety of titles that cover all genres of fiction. The group meets on the fourth Wednesday of the month January through October, and then the first Wednesday of December.
