For September, we will be reading our second “part 2” book – the second book in the Broken Earth Triology by N.K. Jemisin. The first book had a unique narrative structure and it will be interesting to see how Book 2 compares.

***Book summary from Goodreads***
The season of endings grows darker as civilization fades into the long cold night. Alabaster Tenring – madman, world-crusher, savior – has returned with a mission: to train his successor, Essun, and thus seal the fate of the Stillness forever.

It continues with a lost daughter, found by the enemy.

It continues with the obelisks, and an ancient mystery converging on answers at last.

The Stillness is the wall which stands against the flow of tradition, the spark of hope long buried under the thickening ashfall. And it will not be broken.

****This month's restaurant selection***
We are checking out a member suggestion this month – Ohana Café (http://www.theohanacafe.com/). Offering traditional Hawaiian dishes as well as Asian-influenced options, sandwiches and breakfast all day – all with great vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, this promises to be a delicious meeting!

***Not sure about book club or never been to one before? ***
Read the book (or some of the book). Come to the Meetup. Eat yummy food and chat with folks about what you thought about the book. REPEAT!

***Didn’t finish/hated this book?***
Come to the Meetup anyway! If you didn't finish - just be aware, there will be spoilers. If you hated it, come and rant! We have some of the best conversations about what we didn’t like about books!
