The Clive Book Club meets at 6:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of every month in the Community Room at the Clive Public Library. Informative discussions are held on the chosen novel with impressions and opinions being shared by all. Anyone interested may attend any or all of the monthly discussions and new members are always welcome. There is no cost to participate. Some copies of most selections are available for checkout at the Library.
This month we're reading The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach. From the cover:
"At Westish College, baseball star Henry Skrimshander seems destined for
big league until a routine throw goes disastrously off course. In the
aftermath of his error, the fates of five people are upended. Henry's
fight against self-doubt threatens to ruin his future. College president
Guert Affenlight has fallen unexpectedly and helplessly in love. Owen
Dunne becomes caught up in a dangerous affair. Mike Schwartz realizes he
has guided Henry's career at the expense of his own. And Pella
Affenlight returns to Westish after escaping an ill-fated marriage,
determined to start a new life."
