Wausaukee Book Club on June 26

The Wausaukee Book Club will discuss Still Life on Monday, June 26th at 4PM.  This is Louise Penny’s first book in her Inspector Gamache series.

Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surêté du Québec and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it’s a tragic hunting accident and nothing more.   However,  Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods. He is certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bowhunter.
Still Life introduces not only an engaging series hero in Inspector Gamache.   He commands his forces with integrity and quiet courage.

Winner of the New Blood Dagger, Arthur Ellis, Barry, Anthony, and Dilys awards, Louise Penny is known for her sophisticated character development and intricate descriptions.  Come to the library on Monday, June 26th.  Copies of the book are available at the library.

Summer Book Club @ Wausaukee

Wonder by R. J. Palaciio

Come to the Wausaukee Library on June 21 at 4PM to discuss Wonder by R. J. Palacio.  This heartbreaking but positive book has made the New York Times bestseller list and is heralded as one of kids’ best books.  This is the book that inspired the Choose Kind movement.

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid.  However, his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face. WONDER begins from Auggie’s point of view.   Soon the point of view switches to his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These perspectives converge in a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

Pick up a copy of the book at the Wausaukee Library and return on Wednesday, June 21st at 4PM to share your review of this extraordinary book.
