Words Around the World Book Club (Sat. 18 Mar, 2017 11:00 am - 12:00 pm)

The book club that discusses books with the theme "Words Around the World," will meet on Saturday, March 18, at 11 a.m. Led by Wendy Archer, the library's Adult Services Manager, the group will discuss "The Dinner" by Herman Koch.

An internationally bestselling phenomenon, soon to be a major motion picture, "The Dinner" is a darkly suspenseful, highly controversial tale of two families in Amsterdam struggling to make the hardest decision of their lives during a dinner. Each couple has a 15-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. The novel reveals the dark side of genteel society and asks what each of us would do in the face of unimaginable tragedy.

To register and reserve a copy of the book, go to the library website, scarsdalelibrary.org, or call the Reference Desk at 914-722-1302.

The group will meet again on April 8 to discuss "A Gesture Life" by Chang-rae Lee.
