4 Seasons Book Club: TCPL's fiction book club
A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes
Thursday, September 9th
6:30 - 7:30pm
Online via Zoom
The 4 Seasons Book Club meets quarterly to discuss works of modern fiction and celebrated classics. Our Summer Pick is A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes.
Shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, a gorgeous retelling of the Trojan War from the perspectives of the many women involved in its causes and consequences—for fans of Madeline Miller.
This is the women’s war, just as much as it is the men’s. They have waited long enough for their turn . . .
This was never the story of one woman, or two. It was the story of them all . . .
In the middle of the night, a woman wakes to find her beloved city engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly endless years of conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over. Troy has fallen.
From the Trojan women whose fates now lie in the hands of the Greeks, to the Amazon princess who fought Achilles on their behalf, to Penelope awaiting the return of Odysseus, to the three goddesses whose feud started it all, these are the stories of the women whose lives, loves, and rivalries were forever altered by this long and tragic war.
A woman’s epic, powerfully imbued with new life, A Thousand Ships puts the women, girls and goddesses at the center of the Western world’s great tale ever told.
-- Harper Collins, Publisher
The 4 Seasons Book Club decides what to read by group vote. Anyone is welcome to participate in the discussion but Book Club copies are limited so register here or contact Joyce, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you'd like to borrow a copy. This event is free and open to the public.
Panel by Panel Graphic Novel Book Club
March Book 2 by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell
Monday, July 12th
6:30 - 7:30pm
Online via Zoom
Adults are invited to celebrate their love of this diverse and subversive medium in this bi-monthly book club.
For July we will be reading the John Lewis' March Book 2:
The #1 New York Times bestselling series continues! Congressman John Lewis, an American icon and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement, continues his award-winning graphic novel trilogy with co-writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell, inspired by a 1950s comic book that helped prepare his own generation to join the struggle. Now, March brings the lessons of history to vivid life for a new generation, urgently relevant for today's world.
After the success of the Nashville sit-in campaign, John Lewis is more committed than ever to changing the world through nonviolence - but as he and his fellow Freedom Riders board a bus into the vicious heart of the deep south, they will be tested like never before.
Faced with beatings, police brutality, imprisonment, arson, and even murder, the young activists of the movement struggle with internal conflicts as well. But their courage will attract the notice of powerful allies, from Martin Luther King, Jr. to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy... and once Lewis is elected chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, this 23-year-old will be thrust into the national spotlight, becoming one of the "Big Six" leaders of the civil rights movement and a central figure in the landmark 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
