Wednesday, December 11 : The Witch Elm by Tana French
The elm in question lives on the estate where two frail men—Toby, still recovering from a brutal mugging, and Hugo, his dying uncle—live. Their lives are interrupted when a skull is discovered in the elm and detectives discover more secrets from the past.
Novel Conversations is a book group that alternates between classic novels and more recent works of fiction and nonfiction. Participants are welcome to come to all the meetings or just those that sound interesting. Multiple copies of each book are available for checkout in the library and are, whenever possible, made available in large print, audiobook, and ebook editions.
Novel Conversations meets the third Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:00 pm in the Board Room. Refreshments are served!
