Next Meeting is Tuesday, April 7 at 1:00pm in Board Room
Join us for our next afternoon book club meeting. We will be discussing The Pilot’s Wife by Anita Shreve. As a pilot’s wife, Kathryn has learned to expect both intense exhilaration and long periods alone, but nothing has prepared her for a late-night knock that lets her know her husband has died in a crash. As Kathryn struggles with her grief, she descends into a maelstrom of publicity stirred up by the modern hunger for the details of tragedy. Even before the plane is located in waters off the Irish coast, the relentless scrutiny of her husband’s life begins to bring a bizarre personal mystery into focus. Could there be any truth to the increasingly disturbing rumors that he had a secret life?

Next Meeting is Monday, April 20 at 7:00pm in Board Room
Join us for our next book club meeting. We will be discussing Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys. Winter 1945. Four refugees. Four stories. Each one born of a different homeland; each one hunted, and haunted, by tragedy, lies, war. As thousands desperately flock to the coast in the midst of a Soviet advance, four paths converge, vying for passage aboard the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship that promises safety and freedom. But not all promises can be kept.
Books & Brews Book Club
(Meets every other month at 7:00pm at the Clark Bar at Whole Foods Market – 1255 Raritan Rd #150, Clark)
Next Meeting is Monday, March 9 at 7:00pm.
The Clark Public Library & Whole Foods Market invite you to join us for our bi-monthly book club at the Clark Bar. Our March 2020 book is “A Woman of No Importance: The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win WWII” by Sonia Purnell. Her gender and prosthetic leg kept Virginia Hall out of the U.S. foreign service, but she wrested her way into Winston Churchill’s famously break-the-rules Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare and became the first woman deployed to occupied France. Eventually, the Gestapo called her the most dangerous of Allied spies.
