  • PM Book Club


    Location: Friends of the Shorewood Library Program Room

    The PM Book Club is a great opportunity to talk about what you’ve read, learn something new, discover new books, and meet new friends.  Join us this month as we discuss Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.

    On a foggy summer night, eleven people--ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs-the painter-and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family. With chapters weaving between the aftermath of the crash and the backstories of the passengers and crew members--including a Wall Street titan and his wife, a Texan-born party boy just in from London, a young woman questioning her path in life, and a career pilot--the mystery surrounding the tragedy heightens. As the passengers' intrigues unravel, odd coincidences point to a conspiracy. Was it merely by dumb chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something far more sinister at work? Events soon threaten to spiral out of control in an escalating storm of media outrage and accusations. And while Scott struggles to cope with fame that borders on notoriety, the authorities scramble to salvage the truth from the wreckage. Amid pulse-quickening suspense, the fragile relationship between Scott and the young boy glows at the heart of this stunning novel, raising questions of fate, human nature, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.

    Location: Friends of the Shorewood Library Program Room

    The AM Book Club is a great opportunity to talk about what you’ve read, learn something new, discover more great books, and meet new friends.  Join us this month as we discuss The Likeness by Tana French.

    Six months after the events of In the Woods, Detective Cassie Maddox is still trying to recover. She's transferred out of the murder squad and started a relationship with Detective Sam O'Neill, but she's too badly shaken to make a commitment to him or to her career. Then Sam calls her to the scene of his new case: a young woman found stabbed to death in a small town outside Dublin. The dead girl's ID says her name is Lexie Madison--the identity Cassie used years ago as an undercover detective--and she looks exactly like Cassie.

  • Game Night for Adults


    Location: Friends of the Shorewood Library Program Room

    Whether you like to battle wits against or work together with others, tabletop gaming is a great way to socialize and exercise your mind. Light hearted games, deep strategy, or even cooperative play, there is a game out there for you - even if you have little or no experience with gaming. An unfamiliar game may sound intimidating to some, but this is a great way to try something new, meet new people, or maybe dip your toes in a popular hobby that you haven't tried before.

    We'll provide a small library of games to play including some of our favorites, like Coup, Settlers of Catan, and Forbidden Desert. Feel free to bring your own favorites as well!
