The Southwest Book Club will be meeting on Tuesday, August 1, 2006 at 7:00 p.m. in the library meeting room to discuss Life of Pi by Yann Martel.

Life of Pi is a fable-like story about adventure, survival, and ultimately, faith. 16-year-old Pi Patel recounts a harrowing journey adrift in the Pacific Ocean trapped on a 26 foot lifeboat with a wounded zebra, a spotted hyena, a seasick orangutan, and a 450 pound Bengal Tiger. Life of Pi, Martel's second novel, is an award winner in Canada and winner of the 2002 Man Booker Prize.

The Southwest Book Club meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Anyone age 18 or older is welcome. For more information, please email mayer.sandy (at) ocls.info

Southwest Book Club Meets July 18

nutsbook.gif The Southwest Book Club will be meeting on Tuesday, July 18 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss May Contain Nuts by John O"Farrell, a British best-seller author who has been described as the British equivalent of Dave Barry.

May Contain Nuts is a comical and provocative satire about today's overprotective and overcompetitive parents. Although set in British society, Americans will have no problem recognizing or relating to the manic and extreme behavior of the parent protagonists in the novel. O"Farrell has a knack for comic detail, but as with all satire there is are serious lessons to be gleaned.

The Southwest Book Club meets every 3rd Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. (note: starting in August 2006 meetings will be held every first Tuesday of each month). Anyone age 18 or older is welcome. For more information, please email mayer.sandy (at) ocls.info
