July's selection is "Madame Bovary" by Gustave Flaubert.

Emma Bovary, the bored wife of a French provincial doctor, scans her solitude with desperate eyes, like a shipwrecked sailor searching for a white sail on the distant horizon. And when Emma's ship finally comes in, it carries with it vast and tragic consequences upon which her own life and the lives of those around her are wrecked.

Copies of the book will be available at the front desk.

The Classics Book Club is facilitated by Jessica Magill.





 

Booked for Lunch

Tuesday, Aug. 2, at noon

Our August selection is "The Midnight Library" by Matt Haig

Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived, to see how things would be if you had made other choices. Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets? Up until now Nora Seed's life has been full of misery. When she finds herself in the Midnight Library, she can now undo every decision she regrets. But things aren't always what she imagined they'd be.

The Booked for Lunch discussion group meets in the Brooks Room of the library and is facilitated by Library Director Karen Demers.

Copies of the book are held at the Service Desk.
