A NEW BOOK CLUB

AT PAGE 2

     People like talking about books they've read and want to read almost as much as they like reading. At Page 2 we give you several ways to meet fellow book lovers, swap ideas and recommendations, revisit old favorites and discover new ones.

     On the second Thursday of every month, at 6 p.m., we host a book discussion group. This is your opportunity to find out from your fellow book lovers what they've read and liked (or not) and to pass on tips about titles and authors you think others might like.

     The Saturday Morning Book Club, as the name so cleverly suggests, meets the first Saturday of the month at 9 a.m. to discuss a specific book selected by store manager Jenny Cole. To see what's coming up, click on the "Book Club" tab at the top of the page.

     Our newest book club meets the second Tuesday of the month (that's Sept. 13) at 6 p.m. It's hosted by Page 2 staffer Penny, who has selected “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrik Backman (soon to be a movie) as the first selection. Come join the fun and find out what the club will be reading in the months ahead. We'll be posting those titles on our website and in our newsletter. And remember, you can always find book-club titles for sale at Page 2.

 The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough, a Depression era tale of an unlikely love, between an African-American girl who dreams of becoming the next Amelia Earhart by day and sings in the smoky jazz clubs of Seattle by night, and the white adoptive son with all the world’s opportunities before him. What do the fates have in store for these two? This book is a finalist for the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association 2016 book awards.

 

My Old Dog by Laura Coffey, which shares success stories that show how blissful retirement can be for older dogs who get rescued, and how life-changing senior dog adoption can be for the humans who do the rescuing.

 

Grounded: The Adventures of Rapunzel by Megan Morrison, the story of the fantasy world of Tyme, whose residents include a certain well-known long-haired girl. But do you know there’s much more to the Rapunzel story?

 

Sophie's Quest by Sonja Anderson, in which a mouse and an owl set off on a ship bound for the Holy Land. This novel, for children 8 to 12, entertains while teaching about the power of friendship to overcome differences.

 

The League of Regrettable Superheroes by Jon Morris. Do you remember comic books featuring Doll Man, Doctor Hormone, or Spider Queen? Probably not, but they were superheroes just like Superman or Batman,  except in terms of success. Jon Morris’ “The League of Regrettable Superheroes,” introduces readers to 100 of the strangest superheroes ever to see print, complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary  about Bee Man, the Clown, the Eye and other comic-book (non)favorites.

 

Bigfoot Does Not Like Birthday Parties by Eric Ode, a talented and versatile entertainer a children's singer/songwriter, performer (including a regular gig at Remlinger Farm), poet and author (“Elliott the Otter”, “Larry Gets Lost Under the Sea”). His latest hilarious read-aloud book is about the town of Mossy Pockets and the birthday party the residents throw for reluctant Bigfoot.

 

Washington's Pacific Coast by Greg Johnston. Washington’s coast is a unique adventure destination and this new guidebook covers all 157 miles of it. Veteran outdoors writer Greg Johnston’s authoritative guide provides detailed, fun, and family-friendly activities, as well as expansive information, history, and geology. Greg covers hiking options (including little-known trails), every state park along the coast, other public parks, campgrounds, fishing and clamming spots, paddling options, and the best beachcombing destinations.

 

Hidden Treasures: What Museums Can't or Won't Show You, by Harriet Baskas, whose book details all the weird and sometimes wonderful items that museums don’t put out in the display cases.

 

The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot by Blaine Harden tells the parallel tales of how a defector from North Korea who made his escape, bringing a MiG jet with him, and how Kim Il-Sung built his family’s iron grip on that country. It’s an important and fascinating bit of history, but it’s also as contemporary a story as tomorrow’s headlines.

 

hoop: the american dream by Robin Layton. From the humblest garage and street court to the White House, award-winning and nationally famed photographer Robin Layton has captured the wide variety of American hoops, the places where weath-ered dreams, fading memories and future glories were created and are still nurtured. Her new book in-cludes the childhood hoops of celebrated players such as Shaquille O’Neal, Larry Bird, LeBron James, and Sue Bird. The images are complemented by the words of such basketball luminaries as Mike Krzyzewski, Robin Roberts, Gary Payton, Danny Manning, and Rebecca Lobo.
