4 Seasons Book Club: TCPL's fiction book club
A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende
Thursday, June 10th
6:30 - 7:30pm
Online via Zoom
The 4 Seasons Book Club meets quarterly to discuss works of modern fiction and celebrated classics. Our Spring Pick is A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende.
From the author of The House of the Spirits, this epic novel spanning decades and crossing continents follows two young people as they flee the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War in search of a place to call home. (Goodreads)
“One of the most richly imagined portrayals of the Spanish Civil War to date, and one of the strongest and most affecting works in [Isabel Allende’s] long career.”—The New York Times Book Review
We decide 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.
All past titles are available as kits for your own book club meeting!
Panel by Panel Graphic Novel Book Club
March Book 1 by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell
Monday, May 3rd
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 May we will be reading the John Lewis' March Book 1:
Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) is an American icon, one of the key figures of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper's farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington, and from receiving beatings from state troopers to receiving the Medal of Freedom from the first African-American president.
Now, to share his remarkable story with new generations, Lewis presents March, a graphic novel trilogy, in collaboration with co-writer Andrew Aydin and New York Times best-selling artist Nate Powell (winner of the Eisner Award and LA Times Book Prize finalist for Swallow Me Whole).
March is a vivid first-hand account of John Lewis' lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Rooted in Lewis' personal story, it also reflects on the highs and lows of the broader civil rights movement.
Book One spans John Lewis' youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall.
Many years ago, John Lewis and other student activists drew inspiration from the 1958 comic book "Martin Luther King and the Montgomery Story." Now, his own comics bring those days to life for a new audience, testifying to a movement whose echoes will be heard for generations.
