Fourth of July Creek by Smith Henderson

Tuesday • November 1 • 1pm

Bellevue Store

After trying to help a nearly feral boy living in the Montana wilderness, social worker Pete Snow comes face-to-face with the boy's disturbed father. Cautiously, Pete slowly earns a measure of trust from this paranoid survivalist. But when the family's activities spark full-blown interest of the F.B.I., Pete finds himself at the center of a massive manhunt. In Fourth of July Creek, Smith Henderson explores the complexities of freedom, community, grace, suspicion, and anarchy, depicting our nation's disquieting and violent contradictions.

Citizens of London by Lynne Olson

Tuesday • November 8 • 5:30pm

Bellevue Store

Join us on the second Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm to discuss fiction and non-fiction, classics and modern literature, history and contemporary culture, philosophy, biography, and just about everything in between.

Acclaimed author Lynne Olson reveals the behind-the-scenes story of how the United States forged its wartime alliance with Britain in her book, Citizens of London. Told from the perspective of three key American players in London: Edward R. Murrow, Averell Harriman, and John Gilbert Winant, Olson skillfully depicts the dramatic personal journeys of these men who, determined to save Britain from Hitler, helped convince a cautious Franklin Roosevelt and reluctant American public to back the British at a critical time.
