Our next book club meeting is on Tuesday, June 10, at 7:30 p.m. We'll be discussing Ada Blackjack: A true story of survival in the Arctic by Jennifer Niven.    (Yes, we're skipping a May meeting) We have several copies here at the library to share.  It's Laren's turn to bring suggestions and a snack.

And...the votes are all in!  July's book is Comanche Moon by Larry McMurtry. From Library Journal, "This prequel to the classic Lonesome Dove follows Woodrow Call and Augustus McCrae through their years as Texas Rangers as they create legends for themselves fighting the Comanche to open west Texas for settlement. For 15 years, the Rangers play cat-and-mouse games with Buffalo Hump, Kicking Wolf, and other chiefs as they pursue, attack, and retaliate their way through the Comanche wars. Ironically, Blue Duck, Gus McCrae's nemesis in Lonesome Dove, is Buffalo Hump's son, carrying on the tradition started by his father, even though father and son hated one another. Considered together, Dead Man's Walk, Comanche Moon, and Lonesome Dove create a monumental work that has few equals in current literature".
