August Book Discussion–As Long As We Both Shall Live

Join us Tuesday, August 13th, 2019 at 10:30 am when we discuss As Long As We Both Shall Live by Joann Chaney

“My wife! I think she’s dead!” Matt frantically tells park rangers that he and his wife, Marie, were hiking when she fell off a cliff into the raging river below. They start a search, but they aren’t hopeful: no one could have survived that fall. It was a tragic accident.

But Matt’s first wife also died in suspicious circumstances. And when the police pull a body out of the river, they have a lot more questions for Matt.

Detectives Loren and Spengler want to know if Matt is a grieving, twice-unlucky husband or a cold-blooded murderer. They dig into the couple’s lives to see what they can unearth. And they find that love’s got teeth, it’s got claws, and once it hitches you to a person, it’s tough to rip yourself free.

So what happens when you’re done making it work?

Ask at the front desk for a copy of this warm novel or email us at baynelibrary@einetwork.net to reserve your copy.  Mark your calendars for these upcoming book discussions:

July Classics Book Club-The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Join us July 23rd at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark

At the staid Marcia Blaine School for Girls, in Edinburgh, Scotland, teacher extraordinaire Miss Jean Brodie is unmistakably, and outspokenly, in her prime. She is passionate in the application of her unorthodox teaching methods, in her attraction to the married art master, Teddy Lloyd, in her affair with the bachelor music master, Gordon Lowther, and, most important, in her dedication to “her girls,” the students she selects to be her creme de la creme. Determined to instill in them independence, passion, and ambition, Miss Brodie advises her girls, “Safety does not come first. Goodness, Truth, and Beauty come first. Follow me.”
And they do. But one of them will betray her.

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