Adult Book Club at The Martin County Library
Current Book Club Selection
In the spring of 1884, Ulysses S. Grant heeded the advice of Mark Twain and finally agreed to write his memoirs. Little did Grant or Twain realize that this seemingly straightforward decision would profoundly alter not only both their lives but the course of American literature. In this bold and colorful narrative, veteran writer Mark Perry reconstructs the heady months when Grant and Twain became best friends who inspired and cajoled each other to create two quintessentially American masterpieces: Grant's Personal Memoirs and Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. A story of friendship and history, inspiration and ruin, Grant and Twain captures a pivotal moment in the lives of two towering figures of the Gilded Age.

Adult Book Club at Rufus Reed Library
Current Book Club Selection
From Kevin Brockmeier, one of this generation's most inventive young writers, comes a striking new novel about death, life, and the mysterious place in between. The City is inhabited by those who have departed Earth but are still remembered by the living. They will reside in this afterlife until they are completely forgotten. But the City is shrinking, and the residents clearing out. Some of the holdouts, like Luka Sims, who produces the City’s only newspaper, are wondering what exactly is going on. Others, like Coleman Kinzler, believe it is the beginning of the end. Meanwhile, Laura Byrd is trapped in an Antarctic research station, her supplies are running low, her radio finds only static, and the power is failing. With little choice, Laura sets out across the ice to look for help, but time is running out. Kevin Brockmeier alternates these two storylines to create a lyrical and haunting story about love, loss and the power of memory.
