Author: 
Mary Roach
Title: 
Gulp

“America’s funniest science writer” (Washington Post) takes us down the hatch on an unforgettable tour of our insides. The alimentary canal is classic Mary Roach terrain: the questions inspired by our insides are as taboo, in their way, as the cadavers in Stiff and every bit as surreal as the universe of zero gravity explored in Packing for Mars. Why is crunchy food so appealing? Why is it so hard to find names for flavors and smells? Why doesn’t the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before your stomach bursts? Can constipation kill you? Did it kill Elvis? We meet scientists who tackle the questions no one else thinks—or has the courage—to ask. And we go on location to a pet-food taste-test lab, a bacteria transplant, and into a live stomach to observe the fate of a meal.
 

Meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Angel's Island Coffee.  For more information please contact Julia Hendon at 256-881-0257 or jhendon@hmcpl.org. Read more about Saved by the Bell Jar: Gulp

Amor Towles
Title: 
Rules of Civility

This sophisticated and entertaining first novel presents the story of a young woman whose life is on the brink of transformation. On the last night of 1937, twenty-five-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, happens to sit down at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a year-long journey into the upper echelons of New York society—where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve. With its sparkling depiction of New York’s social strata, its intricate imagery and themes, and its immensely appealing characters, Rules of Civilitywon the hearts of readers and critics alike.

Meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Angel's Island Coffee.  For more information please contact Julia Hendon at 256-881-0257 or jhendon@hmcpl.org. Read more about Saved by the Bell Jar: Rules of Civility

Author: 
William Shakespeare
Title: 
Taming of the Shrew

Renowned as Shakespeare's most boisterous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew is the tale of two young men -- the hopeful Lucentio and the worldly Petruchio -- and the two sisters they meet in Padua. Lucentio falls in love with Bianca, the apparently ideal younger daughter of the wealthy Baptista Minola. But before they can marry, Bianca's formidable elder sister, Katherine, must be wed. Petruchio, interested only in the huge dowry, arranges to marry Katherine -- against her will -- and enters into a battle of the sexes that has endured as one of Shakespeare's most enjoyable works.

Meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Angel's Island Coffee.  For more information please contact Julia Hendon at 256-881-0257 or jhendon@hmcpl.org. Read more about Saved by the Bell Jar: The Taming of the Shrew
