Literary Ladies Book
Main Library
Monday, Feb. 27, 6:00 p.m.
 Our February book is A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.  This first book of Swedish author Backman has been very popular with books clubs all over the world.  It is a story about Ove, who believed his life was finished but was forced to find out he still had something to do.
 
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.

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, except for January and February. New members are always welcome.

Monday, Feb. 27, 6:00 p.m.
 
Our February book is The Martian by Andy Weir.  This is a science fiction novel with a sense of humor and of adventure.  Will he be able to stay alive long enough for any rescue?  Will he make contact with NASA?  Will he return to earth??  Read this book, then watch the movie – yes in that order, and join us in our discussion on Monday, February 27 at 6:00.

Our March book is West with the Night by Beryl Markham.  This is Ms. Markham’s biography; she was an aviator, racehorse trainer and noted beauty--and her life in the Kenya of the 1920s and '30s.  She was good friends with Isaac Dinesen.  Her writing has been praised by many authors, including Ernest Hemingway.

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.
