Book Club

Saturday, Jan 07, 2023 02:00pm to 03:00pm

Join us the first Saturday of each month to discuss that month's book ... and whatever else comes up in conversation! An informal and open-minded gathering to review and share thoughts about a varied selection of books.  Everyone welcome.

For January we are reading 'A Possible Madness' by Frank MacDonald.

"Like many smallish and inelegant towns that dot the coastlines and crossroads of this country, Shean’s postwar, post-industrial economy is in desperate disrepair, and the lengths that some civic leaders will go to in order to do “what’s best” for a town like Shean sometimes requires a leap of faith that has unintended consequences.When a global corporation plans a daring scheme to exploit the remaining coal from an improbable source – and thus to secure Shean’s economic future – politicians try to marginalize the few voices of dissent. Some voices, however, are not easily silenced." (
