Adult Book Club: Life of Pi

Come to the Moorhead Public Library every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm for the Adult Book Club. This month, February 20th, we will be reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel. “Life of Pi is a masterful and utterly original novel that is at once the story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on religion, faith, art and life that is as witty as it is profound. Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe.” (From the Publisher.) Stop by for a great discussion; new faces are welcomed :)

Adult Book Club!

Come to the Moorhead Public Library every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm for the Adult Book Club. This month, December 19th, we will be reading Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. “Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by pure luck. Meanwhile, during present time, seventeen-year-old Molly Ayer knows that a community-service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they appear. Moving between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota, Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.” (From the Publisher.)
