Survivor Song by Paul Tremblay

"Survivor Song is a small horror story. A personal one. A fast and terrible one that is committed beautifully to the page. . . . It exists in a pandemic world where all choices are bad ones. Where things unravel faster than you can possibly believe. Where happy endings are transactional: they come with a cost. Because Survivor Song isn't a fairy tale. It's a horror story." – NPR

November's Book Club is November 10 at 6 pm

The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick

It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some twenty years earlier the United States lost a war and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

December's Book Club is December 1 at 6 pm

Secret Santa by Andrew Shaffer

“An offbeat nostalgia trip, a narrative steeped in 1980s pastiche and featuring a unique plot that keeps readers guessing what’s happening . . . Secret Santa is a wonderful read any time of the year, but it’s devilishly appropriate for Christmastime — or perhaps Christmas in July.”—Hollywood Soapbox
