The Trinity Book Club is reading Dog On It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery by Spencer Quinn for the May 17 meeting (5 p.m.). This book begins the detective adventures of Chet and Bernie. Chet is the narrator and is Bernie’s almost-graduated-K9 dog (he flunked out on the last day of K9 school and can’t remember the details, but there was blood involved). Chet’s enthusiasm is infectious and his perspective is unique. This is a fun read.
For the June 21 meeting (5 p.m.), The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes is the club’s pick. This novel won the 2011 Man Booker Award. It is “a mystery of memory and missed opportunity. Tony Webster, a cautious, divorced man in his 60s who “had wanted life not to bother me too much, and had succeeded,” receives an unexpected bequest from a woman he’d met only once, 40 years earlier. The mother of his college girlfriend, Veronica, has bequeathed him £500 — a legacy that unsettles Tony, pushing him to get in touch with Veronica (their relationship had ended badly) and seek answers to certain unresolved questions.” –NY Times Book Review, Nov 10, 2011
All are welcome to attend book club meetings, even if you haven’t finished that month’s selection.
