Evening Fiction Book Club at Central
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This Month’s selection is the New York Times bestselling novel The Alice Network by Kate Quinn. Library Journal says, “This fast-paced story offers courageous heroines, villains you love to hate, and dramatic life-or-death stakes. A compelling blend of historical fiction, mystery, and women’s fiction, Quinn’s complex story and engaging characters have something to offer just about everyone.” 

The Whitby Central Library Evening Fiction Book Club meets on the last Thursday of every month at 7 pm in the Children's Program Room. 

There will be a copy of each month's selection available for the first 12 registrants. Waitlisted registrants who have read the book are welcome to attend the meeting.

This month’s selection is the widely acclaimed title - A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. Booklist has reviewed the novel, stating that “Readers seeking feel-good tales with a message will rave about the rantings of this solitary old man with a singular outlook. If there was an award for 'Most Charming Book of the Year,' this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down.”

The Whitby Central Library Evening Fiction Book Club meets on the last Thursday of every month at 7 pm in the Children's Program Room. 

There will be a copy of each month's selection available for the first 12 registrants. Waitlisted registrants who have read the book are welcome to attend the meeting.
