What we're about

Staying at home....staying safe....a great opportunity to take advantage of some of the quiet time and allowing you to get in some reading. Find yourself a quiet corner, put up your feet and read a good book. Then plan on spending a great evening sharing your thoughts about the book with other book club members

PVBookClub is a great way to meet new friends and enjoy reading and discussing some amazing books. Let's get together to discuss popular or literary fiction with an occasional classic novel or work of non-fiction thrown in. We meet the third Thursday of each month in Pleasant Valley. Book suggestions will be made each month and voted on by members for future reads. And all members are encouraged to nominate titles!!

I hope we’ll have a great time discussing some excellent books while making new friends in the process!

The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles

Brookside Meadows Luxury Rental Community

In June, 1954, eighteen-year-old Emmett Watson is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he has just served fifteen months for involuntary manslaughter. His mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett's intention is to pick up his eight-year-old brother, Billy, and head to California where they can start their lives anew. But when the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two friends from the work farm have hidden themselves in the trunk of the warden's car. Together, they have hatched an altogether different plan for Emmett's future, one that will take them all on a fateful journey in the opposite direction—to the City of New York.

Spanning just ten days and told from multiple points of view, Towles's third novel will satisfy fans of his multi-layered literary styling while providing them an array of new and richly imagined settings, characters, and themes

West with Giraffes by Lynda Rutledge

Brookside Meadows Luxury Rental Community

“Few true friends have I known and two were giraffes…”

Woodrow Wilson Nickel, age 105, feels his life ebbing away. But when he learns giraffes are going extinct, he finds himself recalling the unforgettable experience he cannot take to his grave.

It’s 1938. The Great Depression lingers. Hitler is threatening Europe, and world-weary Americans long for wonder. They find it in two giraffes who miraculously survive a hurricane while crossing the Atlantic. What follows is a twelve-day road trip in a custom truck to deliver Southern California’s first giraffes to the San Diego Zoo. Behind the wheel is the young Dust Bowl rowdy Woodrow. Inspired by true events, the tale weaves real-life figures with fictional ones, including the world’s first female zoo director, a crusty old man with a past, a young female photographer with a secret, and assorted reprobates as spotty as the giraffes.

Part adventure, part historical saga, and part coming-of-age love story, West with Giraffes explores what it means to be changed by the grace of animals, the kindness of strangers, the passing of time, and a story told before it’s too late.
