The Adult Book Club will read “Remarkably Bright Creatures” by Shelby Van Pelt in February.
After Tova Sullivan’s husband died, she began working the night shift at the Sowell Bay Aquarium, mopping floors and tidying up. Keeping busy has always helped her cope, which she’s been doing since her 18-year-old son, Erik, mysteriously vanished on a boat in Puget Sound over 30 years ago.
Tova becomes acquainted with curmudgeonly Marcellus, a giant Pacific octopus living at the aquarium. Marcellus knows more than anyone can imagine but wouldn’t dream of lifting one of his eight arms for his human captors — until he forms a remarkable friendship with Tova.
Discussions will occur at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16, in the downstairs meeting room and at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, via Zoom.
Books are available at SPL or digitally through the Libby app! For information about the adult book club or to receive a Zoom invitation, contact Becky at email@example.com.
