We’ve selected to read a book by Luanne Rice titled Last Day, recommended by MaryBeth Guimaraes.

“From celebrated New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice comes a riveting story of a seaside community shaken by a violent crime and a tragic loss.

“Years ago, Beth Lathrop and her sister Kate suffered what they thought would be the worst tragedy of their lives the night both the famous painting Moonlight and their mother were taken. The detective assigned to the case, Conor Reid, swore to protect the sisters from then on.” GoodReads
First published February 1, 2020

In December we hope to have a Library Author Talk with Luanne Rice, date to be selected.

How to become a Fishers Island Library Book Club member?

Contact Abby McCall or Ann Banks, or just come to a meeting, and you will be added to the contact list. Easy!

Please invite friends who might also be interested. The more readers the better and so many people are unable to join on any given night that I don’t think we can have too many people. There are lots of book lovers on the island and it’s really nice to bring the group together. All are welcome.

We convene our Book Club on the 4th Wednesday of each month whenever possible. Book Club members generally select the book for the following month(s) at a preceding meeting. The volunteers below have offered to suggest books, one to two months ahead to read in these months. (For example, at the January 2024 meeting the books for February and perhaps March will be presented and then the group will choose.) If you would like to help pick a book for a month, please contact Abby McCall. Other book recommendations are always welcome and are included below.
