Literary Ladies Book
Main Library
Monday, Dec. 12, 6:00 p.m.
 Our December book is The Blessing Way, the first mystery novel by Tony Hillerman.  Hillerman introduces us to one of his detectives, Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn.  He is beginning to suspect the hand of a supernatural killer when a murder victim is discovered in a high lonely place, with a crime scene seemingly devoid of tracks or useful clues. 

The book for January is The Boys in the Boat: nine Americans and their epic quest for gold at the 1936 Olympics by Daniel James.   This work of non-fiction tells the story of the University of Washington’s 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans.


The Literary Ladies Book Group meets on the third Monday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Board Room of the Main Library in Franklin. New members are always welcome.

The book we chose for March is West with the Night by Beryl Markham.  Markham was a contemporary of Ernest Hemingway, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and Isak Dinesen. She grew up with a zebra for a pet; horses for friends; baboons, lions, and gazelles for neighbors. She spent most of the rest of her life in East Africa as an adventurer, a racehorse trainer, and an aviatrix.
