BLT Book Club - Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini

Peter Blood is a physician and an English gentleman who becomes a pirate out of a rankling sense of injustice. Barely escaping the gallows after his arrest for treating wounded rebels who were fighting the oppressive King James, Blood flees England and becomes enslaved on a Barbados plantation of buccaneers. When he escapes, no ship sailing the Spanish Main is safe from Blood and his companions. Abounding with adventure, color, romance, and strong social commentary on the evils of slavery and the dangers of intolerance, this classic adventure is a story about how oppression drives men to desperate actions, how fate plays a hand in everyone's life, and how love is ultimately the greatest power of all.Join us in the Monrovia Community Center Meeting Room for a brown bag lunch and book discussion.

Lunch and Love Romance Book Club -Best Man by Kristan Higgins

Having set out for new territory after being left at the altar by her high-school sweetheart, Jeremy, Faith Holland has returned home to work at her family’s vineyard and help her widowed father find love, even though she’s been unlucky in love herself. Back home she’s forced to confront her former fiancé’s best man, Levi, now the town sheriff, who precipitated their wedding-day breakup by revealing that Jeremy is gay. The old animosity between the two gives way to chemistry, especially when they become neighbors and friends, helping each other heal from past heartbreak. Popular romance author Higgins has crafted an appealing novel about second chances. Faith’s family is quirky and charming, and her efforts to set up her father and rekindle the romance between her bickering grandparents are heartwarming. But readers will really swoon for the surly-turned-sensitive Sheriff Levi, who proves that he cared about Faith and her feelings right from the start.Join us for a brown bag lunch and book discussion in the Monrovia Community Center Meeting room next door to the Monrovia Library.

PageTurners: The Cloudspotter's Guide

Where do clouds come from? Why do they look the way they do? And why have they captured the imagination of timeless artists, Romantic poets, and every kid who's ever held a crayon? Journalist and lifelong sky watcher Gavin Pretor-Pinney reveals everything there is to know about clouds, from history and science to art and pop culture. Cumulus, nimbostratus, and the dramatic and seemingly surfable Morning Glory cloud are just a few of the varieties explored in this smart, witty, and eclectic tour through the skies.For more information, please contact Amanda Campbell at 256-461-0046 or acampbell@hmcpl.org. We meet the third Tuesday of each month at The Stem and Stein. Read more about PageTurners: The Cloudspotter's Guide
