“The Page Turners,“ a book club co-sponsored by Princeton Public Library and the Friends of the Library, meets on the second Thursday of every month in The Matson Meeting Room, 6:30–8:00 p.m.
The book selected for Thursday, December 8, will be Snow Falling on Cedars, by David Guterson, a novel set in the aftermath of the U.S. interment of Japanese-American citizens during WWII.
As a Japanese-American fisherman stands trial for murder on an island in Puget Sound, snow blankets the countryside. The whiteness covers the courthouse, but it cannot conceal the memories at work inside: the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, an unrequited love, and the ghosts of racism that still haunt the islanders. First novels rarely attract as much attention as Snow Falling on Cedars. Remaining on best seller lists for months, it has cast a spell on listeners across the country.
Patrons should call the library to reserve a copy of the book. Bring a book title and author that you would recommend to the group for future monthly selections. The Page Turners Book Club is open to all library card holders looking for their next great read!
