Book of the month

"Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts I & II"

by JK Rowling

Nineteen years after the final book in the famous Harry Potter series JK Rowling comes with a new story. This book is the script of the play to be performed In London's West End on July 30th 2016. But since we've missed Harry and his friends and are very curious about the 8th HP story we've selected this book as the new book of the month.
"It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."

Next Book Club

August 27th at 2 pm "English Passengers"by Matthew Kneale.

Captain Illiam Quillian Kewley wants only to smuggle a little tobacco, brandy and French pornography from the Isle of Mann to a secluded beach in England. Yet somehow in the process he and his crew end up weighing anchor for Australia. Worse, they are forced to carry three temperamental Englishmen bound for Tasmania on a mission to discover the exact location of the Garden of Eden. The year is 1857 and the study of geology is beginning to make serious inroads into areas of religious doctrine.

Now jump back 30 years, to 1828. Over the years white settlers have been encroaching on aboriginal land in Tasmania and relations have deteriorated into violence. At the heart of the action is Peevay, a young half-breed abandoned by his aborigine mother, who had been kidnapped and raped by a white escaped convict. Now his vengeful mother is leading a war against the whites, and Peevay, desperate to win her love, has joined her.

Eventually, of course, the two timelines intersect with momentous results.
