The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells
Join us for a discussion of "The War of the Worlds" by H.G. Wells. The night after a shooting star is seen streaking through the sky, terrifying tentacled invaders emerge from a strange cylinder discovered in London. Soon the whole of human civilization is under threat from powerful Martians destroying all in their path. The forces of the Earth, however, may prove harder to beat than they thought. The first modern tale of alien invasion.
November 10, 10:30 in the Media Room
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Join us on for a discussion of "To Kill a Mockingbird," which is getting renewed interest thanks to the recent publication of Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman. If you haven't read this classic in a long time, or never read it, this may be the time to get back to it. Join us for a new perspective on a book that "everyone" is talking about again.
Many thanks to all who have attended the Fourth Monday Readers book discussion group. We are excited about developing a new format and series for an evening book discussion. Stay tuned for announcements.
