Join local author Lisa Lieberman in celebrating the publication of the third installment of her Cara Walden Mysteries series, The Glass Forest.   Banished from the set of The Quiet American, in 1957 Saigon, actress Cara Walden stumbles onto a communist insurgency—& discovers her brother’s young Vietnamese lover right in the thick of it.   As Rick Mofina, author of The Lying House writes, “Dripping with atmosphere & steeped in political intrigue, The Glass Forest channels Graham Greene to perfection.   Don’t miss this gem.”
Noontime Book Conversation This month the group will discuss Henry James’ The Aspern Papers.   Meeting ordinarily on the second Tuesday of every month from 12:00pm until 1:00pm, the group has no fixed members (although quite a few regulars).   Readers are urged to nominate a book to be read, especially if they are willing to lead the discussion.   We focus on fiction & drama with occasional foray into the graphic novel.   We limit the length of our selections to about 200 pages, although this is a guideline rather than a fixed rule.   We believe in the joy of re-reading, so some of our selections are works that many have already read at least once.   The noontime book group is under the general oversight of Michael Greenebaum (mlgreenebaum33@gmail.com) who selects the books & leads the discussions.   He is happy to hear from those with ideas or questions.   Amherst Books offers a 10% discount on the month’s book for those who plan to join the group.   February’s book is The Invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Cesares.
