Escondido, CA - Escondido Public Library invites adult readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on January 12, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. This month’s selection is The Liar’s Wife: Four Novellas by Mary Gordon.  

In these elegantly written novellas of relationships at home and abroad, we meet the ferocious Simone Weil during her final days as a transplant to New York City; a vulnerable American grad student who escapes to Italy after her first, compromising love affair; the charming Irish liar of the title novella, who gets more out of life than most of us; and Thomas Mann, who opens the heart of a high-school kid in America.

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on February 9, 2016 with the non-fiction title Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande. The selection for March 8, 2016 is The Red Lily Crown: A Novel of Medici Florence by Elizabeth Loupas.

Library programs are generously sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Public Library and are free to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in downtown Escondido.  For more information about the 2nd Tuesday Book Club visit library.escondido.org or contact Adult Services Librarian Monica Barrette at 760-839-4836.
