Journey to the Center of the Earth

Journey to the Center of the Earth is a classic 1864 science fiction novel by Jules Verne.

He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snæfellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano.–Amazon.com

June Book Discussion–The Ocean At the End of the Lane

Join us June 14 at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss Neil’s Gaiman’s novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

Ocean At the End of the Lane

Forty years ago, our narrator, who was then a seven-year-old boy, unwittingly discovered a neighboring family’s supernatural secret. What happens next is an imaginative romp through otherwordly adventure that could only come from Gaiman’s magical mind. Childhood innocence is tested and transcended as we see what getting between ancient, mystic forces can cost, as well as what can be gained from the power of true friendship. The result is a captivating tale that is equal parts sweet, sad, and spooky. –Robin A. Rothman, Amazon.com

May Book Discussion–The Bees

Join us May 10 at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss Laline Paull’s anthropomorphic tale, The Bees.

The Bees

Flora 717 is a sanitation worker, a member of the lowest caste in her orchard hive where work and sacrifice are the highest virtues and worship of the beloved Queen the only religion. But Flora is not like other bees. With circumstances threatening the hive’s survival, her curiosity is regarded as a dangerous flaw but her courage and strength are an asset. She is allowed to feed the newborns in the royal nursery and then to become a forager, flying alone and free to collect pollen. She also finds her way into the Queen’s inner sanctum, where she discovers mysteries about the hive that are both profound and ominous.–Amazon.com
