“RoseBlood” by A. G. Howard is the YA Book Club Pick for February.
Rune has a mysterious affliction that’s linked to her musical talent. Her mother believes creative direction will help, so she sends Rune to a French arts conservatory rumored to have inspired “The Phantom of the Opera.”
When Rune begins to develop a friendship with the elusive Thorn, she realizes that with him, she feels cured. But as their love grows, Thorn is faced with an impossible choice: save Rune or protect the phantom haunting RoseBlood, the only father he’s ever known.
Pick up copies at the library. Digital e-books are available on Libby and Hoopla.
Discussions occur from 4-5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 22, and from 12-1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, in the Rosalyn Jones Room/YA Space. Email Michelle, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Amber, email@example.com, with questions.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
