Our next book club meeting is on Monday, February 24, at 7:30 p.m.  We'll be discussing Rilla of Ingleside by L. M. Montgomery.  We have a copy here at the library to share.  SJ, are you up for bringing snack and suggestions?

March's book is Blue Latitutes by Tony Horwitz. From the book cover:  Two centuries after James Cook's epic voyages of discovery, Tony Horwitz takes readers on a wild ride across hemispheres and centuries to recapture the Captain’s adventures and explore his embattled legacy in today’s Pacific. Horwitz, a Pulitzer Prize-winner and author of Confederates in the Attic, works as a sailor aboard a replica of Cook’s ship, meets island kings and beauty queens, and carouses the South Seas with a hilarious and disgraceful travel companion, an Aussie named Roger. He also creates a brilliant portrait of Cook: an impoverished farmboy who became the greatest navigator in British history and forever changed the lands he touched. Poignant, probing, antic, and exhilarating, Blue Latitudes brings to life a man who helped create the global village we inhabit today.
