All of the book discussions are free and open to everyone!Science Fiction & Fantasy Group The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Discussion Group is scheduled for Monday, December 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room. The group will be discussing Neal Shusterman’s “UnWholly,” the second book in the Unwind Dystology Series. According to the book jacket, “Thanks to Connor, Lev, and Risa—and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp—people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished. Cam is a product of unwinding; made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is a teen who does not technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam’s fate to become inextricably bound with the fates of Connor, Risa, and Lev, he’ll have to question humanity itself.”Inspirational Group The Inspirational Book Discussion Group is taking December off and will host its next book club on Tuesday, January 21 at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor meeting room. The group will be discussing Shelly Shepard Gray’s “Peace,” part of the Crittenden County Series. It will be facilitated by Tammy Allison. According to the book jacket, “After a year of secrets and scandal, will this Amish community finally find peace under the bright promise of Christmas? Beth Byler has a secret. Ever since she met Englischer Chris Ellis while helping out at the Yellow Bird Inn, she can't stop thinking about him. She knows a relationship could never go anywhere—Chris was working undercover in Crittenden County as a DEA agent. That meant he faced danger daily and carried a gun, making him completely unsuitable for an Amish woman like herself. But she knew he felt the attraction, too. It was the reason he left so suddenly, promising never to see her again. Then, three days before Christmas, while Beth is taking care of the inn, Chris returns. This time, he is bleeding and in need of a place to hide. Against her better judgment, Beth takes him in and tends to his wounds. She also promises to keep his presence a secret. Before long, it becomes clear that nothing between them has changed—a relationship is inevitable. But are they ready to sacrifice everything for this chance at love?”Mystery GroupThe Mystery Book Discussion Group is taking the month of December off to enjoy the Christmas holiday. The group will return on Tuesday, January 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the second floor board room. The group will be discussing "A Time to Kill” by John Grisham.According to the book jacket, “The life of a ten-year-old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town of Clanton in Ford County, Mississippi, reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her black father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own outraged hands.”
