DISCUSS ONLINE: V For Vendetta by Alan Moore

Online event

Our July book club will meet through Zoom. Your job: RSVP to this meeting and read the graphic novel by July 16. If you RSVP to the meeting you will be able to see the link. "Remember, remember the fifth of November..." A frightening and powerful tale of the loss of freedom and identity in a chillingly believable totalitarian world, V for Vendetta stands as one of the highest achievements of the comics medium and a defining work for creators Alan Moore and David Lloyd. Set in an imagined future England that has given itself over to fascism, this groundbreaking story captures both the suffocating nature of life in an authoritarian police state and the redemptive power of the human spirit which rebels against it. Crafted with sterling clarity and intelligence, V for Vendetta brings an unequaled depth of characterization and verisimilitude to its unflinching account of oppression and resistance.

DISCUSS: Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie

Online event

The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile is shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway has been shot through the head. She was young, stylish and beautiful, a girl who had everything - until she lost her life. Hercule Poirot recalls an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: 'I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.' Yet in this exotic setting, nothing is ever quite what it seems. Available with your library card on Hoopla: https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12411457 (Goodreads: 4.11/5)
