St. James Book Club
While trying to recover from a devastating incident, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache is drawn into investigating a murder in the heart of Old Quebec, opening up an historical mystery in the process. A follow-up to A Brutal Telling and Louise Penny's sixth book in the Armand Gamache series, the multi-award winning Bury Your Dead delighted some of our readers with its evocative scenes and interesting characters, but left others as cold as the Quebec winter Penny describes in such careful detail. Interesting aside: descriptions of Gamache's meals throughout the book are so good you can almost taste them!
Next up: Pick an Elizabeth Bishop poem or two (or more!) to bring to our Jan. 27 meeting as we discuss the poetry of this famous American poet with deep Nova Scotian connections. Book Club meetings are held the last Tuesday of the month, at 6:30 pm in the church parlour. All are welcome. Contact Joanie (465-3557) for more information.
