Book Club Choices 2020 

We are beginning to make the book selections for the new reading season.  We have made our first two selections for those who want to get started early. We will be adding further selections in the next month or so. We select a range of fiction and nonfiction, books that have been recommended by members or books that have been favorably reviewed and books we hope will lead to lively discussions. 

The book club is a wonderful way to get to know other TYC members and to discuss some interesting books. We hope you will join us. Everyone is always welcome.

 The Library Book begins with an investigation of the fire that destroyed the Los Angeles Public Library, but takes us on a journey following the history of libraries. We think you will enjoy this one.

"Weaving her lifelong love of books and reading into an investigation of the fire, award-winning New Yorker reporter and New York Times bestselling author Susan Orlean delivers a mesmerizing and uniquely compelling book that manages to tell the broader story of libraries and librarians in a way that has never been done before." from Good Reads

Meeting #2.    May 2020     The Jell-o Girls: A Family History

                                                  by Allie Rowbottom

Jell-O Girls: A Family History

  This is a dark history of Jello that has been recommended by several members. Since Leroy, New York is the home of Jello, the book has a local connection.

"A memoir that braids the evolution of one of America's most iconic branding campaigns with the stirring tales of the women who lived behind its façade - told by the inheritor of their stories."  ~from Good Reads
