Book Club to Discuss Age of Miracles
Tuesday, July 30, 11:30 a.m.
Join Oglethorpe County Library's book discussion group for lunch and a lively discussion of Karen Thompson Walker's debut novel, Age of Miracles. Take a moment to imagine what it would be like if the rotation of the earth began to slow. Your days and nights grew longer and longer, gravity changed, and the entire environment was thrown in disarray. This is exactly the things that the main characters of Karen's novel must come to terms with in this utterly altered world. Copies of this novel are now available for check-out at the library's circulation desk. Please let us know if you plan to attend so we will have enough food for everyone.
