Pageturners, the book club of Schoolcraft College, has announced its Winter 2021 virtual book club schedule. These discussions, facilitated by Schoolcraft College students, are open to all students, faculty, staff, administrators and community friends.
“The Hound of the Baskervilles” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Synopsis: “The Hound of the Baskervilles” is the third of the crime novels written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle featuring the detective Sherlock Holmes. Set largely on Dartmoor in Devon in England’s West Country, it tells the story of an attempted murder inspired by the legend of a fearsome, diabolical hound of supernatural origin. Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson investigate the case.
Virtual book discussion: Wednesday, Jan. 27, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
“A Walk to Remember” by Nicholas Sparks
Synopsis: The inspiration for “A Walk to Remember” came from the life and courage of Nicholas Sparks’ sister. It tells the story of Landon Carter, who remembers a time when the world was sweeter, when the women in Beaufort, North Carolina, wore dresses, and the men donned hats. Every April, when the wind smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High. Certainly the last person he thought he’d fall for was Jamie, the shy, almost ethereal daughter of the town’s Baptist minister.
Virtual book discussion: Wednesday, Feb. 17, 1:30-2:30 p.m.
“The Notorious RBG” by Irin Carmon and Shana Khizhnik
Synopsis: Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a fierce dissenter with a serious collar game. She was a legendary, self-described “flaming feminist litigator” who made the world more equal as well as an intergenerational icon affectionately known as the Notorious RBG. As the nation mourns the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, discover the story of a remarkable woman and learn how to carry on her legacy. “The Notorious RBG” draws on intimate access to Ginsburg’s family members, close friends, colleagues and clerks, as well as an interview with the Justice herself.
