November Meetup -- Circe
November's book is Circe by Madeline Miller: In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child—not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power—the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves. Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus. • Suggestions for future books are always welcome; just please make sure they're of a reasonable length and easily accessible at the library/most stores. Just drop a comment here or send me a message and I'll add it to the list • Unfortunately, I've been informed that pets are not allowed at the center for allergy/health code reasons, though service animals are of course permitted • You certainly don't 'have to' finish the book before attending the meeting! You might get spoiled if you're not done, but all are welcome for our casual chats ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★ December's book: A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan ★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

    What we're about

    Hello! If you're into reading and chatting about books in a laid-back, friendly environment, then this club is for you. We meet once a month, usually on the last Monday of the month, and we read everything from classics to new novels to memoirs. All are welcome, just click "join" to have updates and information sent right to your inbox. There are no strict attendance or reading policies, just show up when you're in the mood (though there is a $2 meeting fee collected upon arrival). Happy reading!
