Want to join some of your neighbors and talk about a good book? Lakeport has an informal book club that is always open to new members. No master’s degree in literature required (not even a bachelor’s!), and no grades given. Just read the assigned book and show up for a lively, lighthearted discussion. We usually meet monthly on the third Monday evening from 7:00 p.m. to 8-ish (but note different date and time in May!), rotating among members’ homes (or, in May, we will take advantage of our beautiful Lakeport setting and spring weather to meet outside in Triangle Park).
Here is the May selection, which The Washington Post calls "a feel-good book guaranteed to lift your spirits”:
Book: The Midnight Library
Author: Matt Haig
Date: Monday, May 24, 5:00 p.m. (note later date and earlier time)
Place: Triangle Park, if weather is fine and space is available
"Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices . . . Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?"
