Island Book's open book club meets the last Thursday of every month at 7:30pm. Our staff facilitator chooses both fiction and nonfiction titles. All are welcome to attend. This month's choice is A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers.
Note special date for this month's meeting! It's the fourth Thursday of October, not the last one.
a rising Saudi Arabian city, far from weary, recession-scarred America,
a struggling businessman named Alan Clay pursues a last-ditch attempt
to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter's college tuition, and
finally do something great. Dave Eggers
takes us around the world to show how one man fights to hold himself and
his splintering family together.
