The LWVEdina Book Club meets on the 4th Saturday of the month. Here are the group’s upcoming selections:
March 27: This Tender Land by William Kent Kruger
Described as a nature filled adventure story, this book follows four orphans as they escape a training center for Native American children in Minnesota, canoe down the Mississippi River and discover others who are equally adrift in America in the midst of the Great Depression.
April 24: The Sellout by Paul Beatty
Winner of the Mann Booker Prize, Beatty’s novel has been hailed as a comic masterpiece and biting satire. The plot is absurd, but NPR calls it, ‘…one of the smartest and most honest reflections on race and identity in America in a very long time, written by an author who truly understands what it means to talk about the history of the country.”
May 22: The Last Flight by Julie Clark
This New York Times best seller is a combination thriller/mystery that reviewers claim will keep you guessing to the end. It is a story of two women who make choice that will change the course of both their lives.
