We're going for light and wild this month with a beach party planned for the group and another funny book from the team of Lisa Lutz and David Hayward.
First Beach Party!
Our theme centers on the fun of the beach without the sand. Please join us for a Beach Blanket Bingo-time! Wear your flip flops, hawaiian shirt, and shorts. Bring your favorite beach snack to share. I'll provide ice tea and hawaiian shaved ice (yum!).
With Heads You Lose, we're revisiting Lisa Lutz along with her writing partner David Hayward. Read as they write - and argue - the tale of murder and marijuana. Here's the synopsis from Vroman's website:
"Dave, I just finished the first chapter of a new novel-a real crime novel with a dead body and all-and I thought of you...
Paul and Lacey Hansen are pot-growing, twentysomething siblings sharing a modest rambler of a home in rural Northern California. When they find a headless corpse on their property they can't exactly call 911, so they simply move the body to another location. Let somebody else find it. Instead, the corpse reappears on their land. Clearly, someone is sending them a message, and it's getting riper by the day. But that's only half of the story...
Enter authors Lisa Lutz and David Hayward-former real-life partners (professionally and personally) who have agreed to reunite for a tag- team mystery novel written in alternating chapters. One little problem: they disagree on pretty much every detail of how their novel should unfold. While the body count rises in Paul and Lacey's wildly unpredictable fictional world, so too does the intensity of Lisa and David's rivalry. The result is a literary brawl like no other, and a murder mystery every bit as unanticipated (and bloody)."
