The book club meets under the direction of Lorraine D. Input about titles of books and types of books that you would like to read is encouraged. New participants are always welcome. Share your joy of reading, join in book discussions.

After several years of borrowing sets of novels from the PG Public Library, in March 2019 we decided that each month we will each select a book by an unfamiliar author from the NCSA Library shelves, and tell the group about it at the next meeting.

Our most recent meeting was held Wednesday, September 25th. Our next meeting will be held Wednesday, October 30th, 11:00 a.m. to noon. Everyone is welcome.

The most recent novel from PGPL that we read as a group:

Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala

On the morning of December 26, 2004, on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, Sonali Deraniyagala lost her parents, her husband, and her two young sons in the tsunami she miraculously survived. In this brave and searingly frank memoir, she describes those first horrifying moments and her long journey since.

She has written an engrossing, unsentimental, beautifully poised account: as she struggles through the first months following the tragedy, furiously clenched against a reality that she cannot face and cannot deny; and then, over the ensuing years, as she emerges reluctantly, slowly allowing her memory to take her back through the rich and joyous life she's mourning, from her family's home in London, to the birth of her children, to the year she met her English husband at Cambridge, to her childhood in Colombo; all the while learning the difficult balance between the almost unbearable reminders of her loss and the need to keep her family, somehow, still alive within her.
