What we're about

Looking to connect with fellow bookworms in the Mountain View area? You've come to the right place! We are a group of avid readers who like to stay up-to-date on the latest in literature, while still enjoying the classics. And we're not all work and no play-- there will be plenty of socializing and maybe a cocktail/coffee or two, too! Potential books will be selected by members and curated from book awards lists (think Man Booker Prize, National Book Award, etc.), and voted on by members in advance of each meet up. I hope you'll join us!

Plainsong, Kent Haruf

Online event

From Amazon:
"A heartstrong story of family and romance, tribulation and tenacity, set on the High Plains east of Denver.

In the small town of Holt, Colorado, a high school teacher is confronted with raising his two boys alone after their mother retreats first to the bedroom, then altogether. A teenage girl—her father long since disappeared, her mother unwilling to have her in the house—is pregnant, alone herself, with nowhere to go. And out in the country, two brothers, elderly bachelors, work the family homestead, the only world they've ever known. From these unsettled lives emerges a vision of life, and of the town and landscape that bind them together—their fates somehow overcoming the powerful circumstances of place and station, their confusion, curiosity, dignity and humor intact and resonant. As the milieu widens to embrace fully four generations, Kent Haruf displays an emotional and aesthetic authority to rival the past masters of a classic American tradition."

The Thursday Murder Club, Richard Osman

Online event

From Amazon:
"In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together they call themselves the Thursday Murder Club.

When a local developer is found dead with a mysterious photograph left next to the body, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case.

As the bodies begin to pile up, can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it's too late?"
