*Mystery Book Club:  ”Think of a Numb3r”  by John Verdon
Monday,  October  7,  7:00 p.m. No registration required.

*Science Fiction Book Discussion: "Year Zero" by Robert Reid
Saturday,  October 19, 2:30 p.m.  No registration is required.
In the hilarious tradition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Rob Reid takes you on a headlong journey through the outer reaches of the universe--and the inner workings of our absurdly dysfunctional music industry.
                The entire cosmos has been hopelessly hooked on humanity's music ever since "Year Zero" (1977 to us), when American pop songs first reached alien ears. This addiction has driven a vast intergalactic society to commit the biggest copyright violation since the Big Bang. The resulting fines and penalties have bankrupted the whole universe. We humans suddenly own everything-- and the aliens are not amused.
 
*Central Reads Book Club:  "Before I Go to Sleep" by S. J. Watson
Wednesday, October  16,  1:00 p.m.  No registration required.
An amnesiac attempts to reconstruct her past by keeping a journal and discovers the dangerous inconsistencies in the stories of her husband and her secret doctor.
