Thanks to MELSA for the amazing "Falen's Book Club" T-Shirts and Green Mill for our amazing dinner! Also, thanks to our Author, Lori for joining us!
In March, we'll be at a NEW location!
MELSA and the metro public libraries will be sponsoring this month! We will be meeting on Wednesday, March 29th at the Ridgedale Library from 6-8p! The Ridgedale Library is conveniently located at 12601 Ridgedale Drive, Minnetonka (across from the Ridgedale Mall). We’ll meet in the Robert H. Rohlf Room, located on the first floor. (When you enter the building, turn to your left and stay on the first floor rather than taking the stairs up to the library. Continue toward the Administrative Offices and the Rohlf Room will be on your left.) There’s plenty of free parking. Also, the Ridgedale Library is open from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., in case you want to arrive early or stay after Book Club to do some browsing/check out materials.
RSVP with your first and last name and number of guests to firstname.lastname@example.org
Dinner will be provided by Green Mill! YAY!
AND we'll be reading The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner!
About the book: Dill has had to wrestle with vipers his whole life—at home, as the only son of a Pentecostal minister who urges him to handle poisonous rattlesnakes, and at school, where he faces down bullies who target him for his father’s extreme faith and very public fall from grace. The only antidote to all this venom is his friendship with fellow outcasts Travis and Lydia. But as they are starting their senior year, Dill feels the coils of his future tightening around him. Dill’s only escapes are his music and his secret feelings for Lydia—neither of which he is brave enough to share. Graduation feels more like an ending to Dill than a beginning. But even before then, he must cope with another ending—one that will rock his life to the core. In this William C. Morris Award Finalist, debut novelist Jeff Zentner provides an unblinking and at times comic view of the hard realities of growing up in the Bible belt, and an intimate look at the struggles to find one’s true self in the wreckage of the past.
