Book Discussion Group - State of Wonder


May 13, 2013

Program Locations:

Get the neighborhood read.  Check out what the librarian has recommended, and hear what others think about it.  We've got the books, now we need you to talk!

This month's discussion will be of the book, State of Wonder, by Ann Patchett.


A researcher at a pharmaceutical company, Marina Singh, must step out of her comfort zone when she is sent into the heart of the Amazonian delta to check on a field team that has been silent for two years--a dangerous assignment that forces Marina to confront the ghosts of her past.

Book discussion group members must reserve copies of each title through the library's catalog system. Reserve your copy by visiting your local branch today.
