Title: 
My Salinger Year

Poignant, keenly observed, and irresistibly funny: a memoir about literary New York in the late nineties, a pre-digital world on the cusp of vanishing, where a young woman finds herself entangled with one of the last great figures of the century. For more information please contact Julia Hendon at 256-881-0257 or jhendon@hmcpl.org. We meet the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Angel's Island Coffee.

Title: 
What I was doing while you were breeding

Kristin Newman spent much of her twenties and thirties buying dresses to wear to her friends' weddings and baby showers. Not ready to settle down and in need of an escape from her fast-paced job as a sitcom writer, Kristin instead traveled the world, often alone, for several weeks each year. In addition to falling madly in love with the planet, Kristin fell for many attractive locals, men who could provide the emotional connection she wanted without costing her the freedom she desperately needed. For more information please contact Julia Hendon at 256-881-0257 or jhendon@hmcpl.org. We meet the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Angel's Island Coffee.

Read your favorite holiday mystery or romance novel

Cupid's Café features romantic fiction. An author is chosen every month and members read at least one of the author's books before the next meeting. Members share their favorites, discuss the good, the bad, and the naughty, and have fun trying new titles in this exciting and widely read genre.

The format of Cupid's Café is to choose authors in a cycle. The first month of a cycle features a new or newly-discovered writer; the second month spotlights a perennial favorite; and the third month showcases our regional talent by choosing an author who lives in North Alabama.Pizza is offered at the meetings and there is a $5.00 charge if you would like to eat pizza.

For the December 3 book club meeting, read your favorite holiday mystery or romance novel

Wednesday, 12/3, 12:00  PM (Noon), Main Library Meeting Room A+B
