December Book Discussion Group-Female Persuasion

Join us December 11, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss, The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer

Female Persuasion

Greer Kadetsky is a shy college freshman when she meets the woman she hopes will change her life. Faith Frank, dazzlingly persuasive and elegant at sixty-three, has been a central pillar of the women’s movement for decades, a figure who inspires others to influence the world. Upon hearing Faith speak for the first time, Greer—madly in love with her boyfriend, Cory, but still full of longing for an ambition that she can’t quite place—feels her inner world light up. And then, astonishingly, Faith invites Greer to make something out of that sense of purpose, leading Greer down the most exciting path of her life as it winds toward and away from her meant-to-be love story with Cory and the future she’d always imagined.

Ask at the front desk for a copy of this suspenseful dystopia or email us at baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve your copy. And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming book discussions:

Book Club for Kids – January Selection

Our book club for kids (ages 9 – 12) will be taking a break for December. Our next meeting is on Monday, January 28 @ 5:30 p.m. to discuss The  Wizards  of Once by Cressida Cowell. Call us or stop by the front desk to reserve your copy and join us for a fun time.

This is the story of a young boy Wizard and a young girl Warrior who have been taught to hate each other like poison; and the thrilling tale of what happens when their two worlds collide.

Once there was Magic, and the Magic lived in the dark forests. Wizard boy, Xar, should have come into his magic by now, but he hasn’t, so he wants to find a witch and steal its magic for himself. But if he’s got any chance of finding one, he will have to travel into the forbidden Badwoods.
Xar doesn’t realize he is about to capture an entirely different kind of enemy, a Warrior girl called Wish. And inside this book, at this very moment, two worlds collide and the fate of the land is changed forever. Xar and Wish must visit the dungeons at Warrior fort, and face the evil Queen. But something that has been sleeping for hundreds of years
is stirring….                                                                                                            -Goodreads
