Mystery Book Group discusses Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs

Mystery Book Group discusses Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs

Meeting Room A, Sequoya Library
02/07/2018
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Sequoya's Mystery Book Group hosts a book discussion of Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs. While investigating a grisly discovery for the Montreal coroner's office, Tempe Brennan finds herself remembering a similar investigation she conducted on the remains of a woman who was savagely dismembered and stuffed in garbage bags. When Tempe's concerns about a serial killer are dismissed by the police, she decides to pursue the matter herself--a course of action that both puts her career on the line and so effectively upsets the murderer's plan that he sets his sights on her. Montreal, with its French culture, is an enticing setting for Reichs' first mystery, and as a forensic anthropologist who spends part of her time working for the Province of Quebec, Reich knows the city well. She also contributes a wealth of authentic medical detail as she follows Tempe on her gripping, convoluted quest to catch a psychotic killer.

Thursday Book Group discusses Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Thursday Book Group discusses Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Meeting Room B, Sequoya Library
02/22/2018
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Sequoya's Thursday Book Group hosts a book discussion of Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. The Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hellish for all the slaves but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood—where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Here, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor—engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Whitehead’s narrative weaves the saga of America from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day.
