July's book discussion is on "Museum of Extraordinary Things" by Alice Hoffman. Coralie Sardie is the daughter of the sinister impresario behind The Museum of Extraordinary Things, a Coney Island boardwalk freak show that thrills the masses. An exceptional swimmer, Coralie appears as the Mermaid in her father’s “museum,” alongside performers like the Wolfman, the Butterfly Girl, and a one-hundred-year-old turtle. One night Coralie stumbles upon a striking young man taking pictures of moonlit trees in the woods off the Hudson River. The dashing photographer is Eddie Cohen, a Russian immigrant who has run away from his father’s Lower East Side Orthodox community and his job as a tailor’s apprentice. When Eddie photographs the devastation on the streets of New York following the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, he becomes embroiled in the suspicious mystery behind a young woman’s disappearance and ignites the heart of Coralie.

A second opportunity to discuss this book will be on Wednesday, July 15 at 12:30 pm.

Escape the Ordinary Book Club

Monday, August 17, 2015

Henika District Library

149 S Main St Wayland MI 49348    Map

6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

August's book discussion is on the book "Around the World in 50 Years" by Albert Podell. This is the inspiring story of an ordinary guy who achieved two great goals that others had told him were impossible. First, he set a record for the longest automobile journey ever made around the world, during the course of which he blasted his way out of minefields, survived a breakdown atop the Peak of Death, came within seconds of being lynched in Pakistan, and lost three of the five men who started with him, two to disease, one to the Vietcong. Albert Podell's Around the World in 50 Years is a remarkable and meaningful tale of quiet courage, dogged persistence, undying determination, and an uncanny ability to extricate himself from one perilous situation after another--and return with some of the most memorable, frightening, and hilarious adventure stories you have ever read.

A second opportunity to discuss this book will be on Wednesday, August 19 at 12:30 pm.
