Join the Usual Suspects book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

Dorothy L. Sayers, perhaps the finest detective novelist of the Golden Age, is most famous for her dashing amateur sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey. Gaudy Night is the tenth book in her Peter Wimsey series, but the first to be narrated entirely by his love, Harriet Vane.

When Harriet attends her Oxford reunion, known as the Gaudy, she find herself ensnared in a nightmare of romance and terror as the prim academic setting is haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obscenities, burnt effigies, and threatening letters. With only the tiniest shreds of clues, to find the culprit she'll need all her powers of detection as well as those of Lord Peter Wimsey.

Like a Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun by Sarah Ladipo Manyika

Monday • August 28 • 6pm

The book store cafe fireside

Join Nick's Picks book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

A genuinely good old woman touches many lives.

Meet elderly Dr. Morayo de Silva, half-Nigerian citizen of San Francisco, who values her books above everything and has a kind word for everyone. A good author can reveal a persons character in their interactions during a normal day. Sarah Ladipo Manyika does that expertly in her very short novel with the very long title. And then she adds a few surprises.

Told through multiple voices, its a slight but very touching story of age and time and kindness, allowing you to enjoy the company with a woman any sane person would want as their best friend.
