Page Turners Book Club (Virtual)

This month's book selection is How to Stop Time by Matt Haig.

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. Tom has lived history — performing with Shakespeare, exploring the high seas with Captain Cook, and sharing cocktails with Fitzgerald. Now, he just wants an ordinary life. So Tom moves back to London, his old home, to become a high school history teacher — the perfect job for someone who has witnessed the city's history first hand. Better yet, a captivating French teacher at his school seems fascinated by him. But the Albatross Society, the secretive group which protects people like Tom, has one rule: Never fall in love. As painful memories of his past and the erratic behavior of the Society's watchful leader threaten to derail his new life and romance, the one thing he can't have just happens to be the one thing that might save him. Tom will have to decide once and for all whether to remain stuck in the past, or finally begin living in the present.

The Page Turners meet the third Wednesday of each month at 1 p.m. Our book selections cover all genres and take member input into consideration. During each six month period, we discuss at least one nonfiction book and one classic book. Genres for the remaining months vary. We engage in a guided discussion of the book, using questions provided by a librarian. Our discussions often branch out into chats about other books and authors. This book club is best suited for adults, but all are welcome to join.

  • Registration is required.

  • This event will be hosted live on Zoom.

  • Registrants will receive an email invitation the day of the event.
