If you aren't completely anti-vampire, A discovery of witches might be one to take to the lake. Written by a history professor, it is rich in European history and settings. Harkness chooses to begin this book, the first in a trilogy, in Oxford at the Bodleian Library--pure joy for Tolkien or C.S. Lewis fans!
June was a busy month for our members, so much so we had to cancel our meeting, so for July we will finish discussing Drums of Autumn and begin discussing Fiery Cross, both by Diana Gabaldon. We will meet on Monday, July 11 at 6:00 pm in the McIntyre Room. If you are a fan of Clare and Jamie's, join us. If you are an ardent Jane Austen fan, join us as well. We never tire of discussing our favorite author and her seminal works.
Cat lovers, here's a mystery series for you! If you love Lillian Jackson Braun, you just might like Shirley Rousseau Murphy. Equally cozy, the Joe Grey series is enchanting in many of the same ways as the Braun's series. While Braun's settings vary, the main locale, Moose County, is "400 miles north of everywhere." Usually acknowledged as Bad Axe, Michigan, Braun lived there for years.
