Join us on Zoom to discuss this month's book, The Engineer's Wife by Tracey Wood!

Emily Roebling refuses to live conventionally―she knows who she is and what she wants, and she's determined to make change. But then her husband asks the unthinkable: give up her dreams to make his possible.
Emily's fight for women's suffrage is put on hold, and her life transformed when her husband Washington Roebling, the Chief Engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge, is injured on the job. Untrained for the task, but under his guidance, she assumes his role, despite stern resistance and overwhelming obstacles. But as the project takes shape under Emily's direction, she wonders whose legacy she is building―hers, or her husband's. As the monument rises, Emily's marriage, principles, and identity threaten to collapse. When the bridge finally stands finished, will she recognize the woman who built it?

An English Landscape
Zoom Program
Thursday, Nov. 12, 3:00 pm
In this talk, Courtney Skipton Long, Ph. D. will examine the life and artistic practice of one of England's most celebrated lanscape painters, John Constable (1776-1837). Unlike his contemporary, J.M.W. Turner, Constable was not a prodigy. He labored to acquire technical proficiency, spending years in art classes before being elected as a full member of the Royal Academy at age 52. Never traveling beyond his home country, Constable has been recognized as the local boy who transformed landscape painting, winning medals in France and admirers around the world. Dr. Long is a historian of art and architecture. She holds a B.A. in the History of Art and Medieval Studies from Mount Holyoke College and a Master's and Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh.

Join us on Zoom to discuss this month's mystery, The Face of a Stranger by Anne Perry.

His name, they tell him, is William Monk, and he is a London police detective. But the accident that felled him has left him with only half a life; his memory and his entire past have vanished. As he tries to hide the truth, Monk returns to work and is assigned to investigate the brutal murder of a Crimean War hero and man about town. Which makes Monk's efforts doubly difficult, since he's forgotten his professional skills along with everything else.

Join us on Zoom to discuss this month's book, The Last Story of Mina Lee by Nancy Jooyoun Kim!

Margot Lee’s mother, Mina, isn’t returning her calls. It’s a mystery to twenty-six-year-old Margot, until she visits her childhood apartment in Koreatown, LA, and finds that her mother has suspiciously died. The discovery sends Margot digging through the past, unraveling the tenuous invisible strings that held together her single mother’s life as a Korean War orphan and an undocumented immigrant, only to realize how little she truly knew about her mother.
Interwoven with Margot’s present-day search is Mina’s story of her first year in Los Angeles as she navigates the promises and perils of the American myth of reinvention. While she’s barely earning a living by stocking shelves at a Korean grocery store, the last thing Mina ever expects is to fall in love. But that love story sets in motion a series of events that have consequences for years to come, leading up to the truth of what happened the night of her death.

Join us on Zoom to discuss this month's mystery, Homicide for the Holidays by Cheryl Honigford!

Homicide for the Holidays is a riveting holiday mystery set amidst the glitz of Chicago's radio drama scene and the grime of its taverns and speakeasies.
A hidden key that opens a drawer locked for the past eight years, a mysterious envelope filled with cash, and a threatening note... none of this is what rising radio star Vivian Witchell expects to find in her late father's office. But when Vivian stumbles into trouble, she hardly knows how to steer herself back to safety.
With the handsome and maddeningly practical private detective Charlie Haverman at her side, Vivian spends the holiday season uncovering the details of the last weeks of her father's life, following a sinister trail of clues that leads her directly to one of the most notorious mob bosses of all time, Al Capone.
