WAUSEON—Both the Science Fiction & Fantasy and the Mystery Book Discussion Groups will meet the last full week of March at the Wauseon Public Library. The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Club will meet on March 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s second floor board room while the Mystery Book Discussion Group will meet on March 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s main floor Reading Room. Both book discussion groups are free and open to everyone.
The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Discussion Group will be discussing “Vision in Silver,” part of the Others Series by Anne Bishop. The discussion will be facilitated by Library Director Amy Murphy.
According to the book’s jacket, “The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before—both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him. Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict. For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep.”
The Mystery Book Discussion Group will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, March 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the main floor Reading Room. The group will be discussing “The Escape” by David Baldacci.
According to “The Escape’s” book jacket, “A combat veteran and special agent with the U.S. Army, John Puller is the man they call to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. But all his training, all his experience, all his skills will not prepare him for his newest case, one that will force him to hunt down the most formidable and brilliant prey he has ever tracked: his own brother.”
