Which book is more your style: a sensitive development of friendship and character, or a classic noir tale with danger and mystery? Can't decide? This month we're reading two very diverse books for NPL's book clubs; join us for one, or both!


On Thursday, July 17th at 7:00 p.m., the Constant Readers Evening Book Club will meet to discuss The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett. In this hard-boiled classic, detective Sam Spade leads readers on the trail of mystery, murder and a valuable artifact.


On Tuesday, July 22nd at 10:30 a.m., the Readers Rendezvous Daytime Book Club will talk about Carol Rifka Brunt's Tell The Wolves I'm Home. This first-time author has created a tense yet tender family drama woven around 14-year-old June, who is adrift after the death of her Uncle Finn. But when a friend of Finn's enters into her life, June learns more about her uncle...and that Finn's death hasn't affected just her family. 


Both clubs meet in the Nichols Library Lower Level Board Room. See you there!
