Leslye Walton
Title: 
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava — in all other ways a normal girl — is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration. That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo. First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.

Title: 
What I was doing while you were breeding

Kristin Newman spent much of her twenties and thirties buying dresses to wear to her friends' weddings and baby showers. Not ready to settle down and in need of an escape from her fast-paced job as a sitcom writer, Kristin instead traveled the world, often alone, for several weeks each year. In addition to falling madly in love with the planet, Kristin fell for many attractive locals, men who could provide the emotional connection she wanted without costing her the freedom she desperately needed.

Read your favorite holiday mystery or romance novel

Cupid's Café features romantic fiction. An author is chosen every month and members read at least one of the author's books before the next meeting. Members share their favorites, discuss the good, the bad, and the naughty, and have fun trying new titles in this exciting and widely read genre.

The format of Cupid's Café is to choose authors in a cycle. The first month of a cycle features a new or newly-discovered writer; the second month spotlights a perennial favorite; and the third month showcases our regional talent by choosing an author who lives in North Alabama.Pizza is offered at the meetings and there is a $5.00 charge if you would like to eat pizza.

For the December 3 book club meeting, read your favorite holiday mystery or romance novel

Wednesday, 12/3, 12:00  PM (Noon), Main Library Meeting Room A+B
