Summer Reads from the MUM Book Discussion Group

A summer of reading is ahead from the MUM Book Discussion Group! We have picked our next two monthly reading choices for June and July.

Our June book discussion will be on Wednesday, June 23, from 12:00-1:00 in the library (aim for the blue chairs). Our book is Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake. We join family of Indian immigrants as they transform themselves into Americans. A fuller description is available at http://www.readinggroupguides.com/guides3/namesake1.asp The book is widely available through OhioLINK and can be requested from this page: http://tinyurl.com/29q2ka3

Our July discussion will be held on Thursday, July 22, from 12:00-1:00 in the library. The book is the Scandinavian thriller The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson. Financial intrigue and a mysterious disappearance challenge Swedish journalist Mikael Blomkvist and his putative ally, the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander. More information on the book is available at http://www.bookbrowse.com/reviews/index.cfm/book_number/2179/The-Girl-with-the-Dragon-Tattoo The book may be requested from OhioLINK at this page: http://tinyurl.com/2agrpny
