NEW MEETING DATE & TIME!!
October 17, 2015 @ 1:30, UUFP
The bookclub welcomes all sleuths at heart to join us on this adventure with Flavia de Luce. All are welcome to join us for lunch and discussion of the book of the month. We will meet at UUFP, at 1:30 on October 17.
The book club selection for September is “The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie” by Allen Bradley. Set in the English countryside in 1950, it features Flavia de Luce, an 11-year-old amateur sleuth who pulls herself away from her beloved chemistry lab in order to clear her father in a murder investigation. First-time novelist, Bradley, wrote the book after winning the 2007 Debut Dagger Awardand selling the publishing rights in 3 countries based on the first chapter and a synopsis. Well received by critics as an old -fashioned mystery featuring an unforgettable protagonist, the novel has won multiple awards and is the first in a proposed 10-book series.
Amazon readers gave it a 4.3 out of five star rating. It is available in paperback, Kindle edition and as an audiobook.
For those of us who are prodigious readers (myself included), I would like to pick future books as well. “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr has been recommended for our October/November meeting. It looks interesting, the story of a blind orphan in war torn Paris. It also is available in several formats and was rated a 4.6 of a possible 5 stars by Amazon readers.
We will discuss future meeting intervals and formats for our meetings at this meeting so please bring your ideas. It has been suggested that we do not read a specific book but rather discuss books we have read and loved.
It is not necessary to have read/finished the book to join us for talk and fun. How can we miss: readers are a powerful force in the universe!!!
