-A A +A

The Fiction Book Bunch meets monthly on Mondays at 1:30 p.m. at the Cedar Key Library.  Selections are as follows:

Feb. 11: This meeting will discuss Tracy Chevalier’s “Remarkable Creatures”.  This novel takes readers back to the 19th century to a fossil-strewn beach where a woman discovers a skeleton that will turn her town, its churches and the scientists of the time into a whirl of discovery and argument. 

March 11: Owen Sheers’ “Resistance” will be discussed. This novel focuses upon a Welch village during World War II German invasion of Britain.

April 11: Edmund deWaal’s “The Hare with the Amber Eyes” is the selected non-fiction text.  This memoir focuses upon a collection of small Japanese carvings called netsuke that have been in a family for generations and tells of how they came to be a collection.  A wonderful sense of the times and character of the distinguished family are portrayed.  

The April meeting is planned as a joint fiction/nonfiction group gathering; please, bring a covered dish.
