Island City Book Club
book cover imageThe Island City Book Club meets at 6:30 p.m. at the library on the third Wednesday of each month. Join us on October 21 for a discussion of The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins' thriller in three voices. Each narrator is unreliable, guided by her own neuroses, addictions, and self-interest as she makes her way toward the chilling conclusion.

Learn more about our August selection at the author's website.
