The Cabinet of Curiosities
by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child
In present-day downtown Manhattan, digging has uncovered gruesome evidence of a serial killer at work in New York’s notorious Five Points neighborhood in the 1880s. When a newspaper story on the old murders appears to ignite a new series of horrifyingly similar killings, panic overtakes New York City. FBI agent Pendergast, journalist Bill Smithback, and archaeologist Nora Kelly join forces to protect themselves from a vicious killer -- before they become the next victims.

All Quiet on the Western Front
by Erich Maria Remarque
Join us as we celebrate the Thursday Night Book Group’s 100th book with a classic novel of World War I. “All Quiet on the Western Front” explores the necessity and purpose of war through a detailed account of life in the trenches from the point of view of Paul Bäumer, one incredibly observant young German soldier who (like Remarque) joined up along with the rest of his classmates at age 18. First published in Germany in 1929, the novel was banned by the Nazis. In America, this book remains one of the most popular novels addressing WWI, despite the fact that the story is told from the enemy perspective.
(meeting on 4th Thursday this month)
Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger’s
by John Elder Robison
The author describes how from an early age he could not communicate effectively with others, something he now knows his brain is not wired to do. Failing in junior high, Robison was encouraged to focus on fixing some audiovisual equipment, and he discovered a machine world where he was comfortable and could succeed. Finally, at age 40, he was correctly diagnosed as having Asperger’s syndrome.
