We had another successful and fun meeting of the Book Club on August 26. Thanks to Elena Moglia for hosting and providing the yummy appetizers and to Gene Young for leading the discussion on Savage Run by C. J Box. This was the sequel to the author's first novel, Open Season, which the Book Club read about 2 years ago. CSOC's Book Club was started in January, 2017 and since that time, we've read and discussed 27 books. Our book selections for the next several months are:

A Gentleman From Moscow by Amor Towles
In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov has never worked a day in his life and must now live in an attic room, while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel's doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him a doorway into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl", Kya Clark, has haunted a quiet town on the NC coast. She's barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So, in 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya. Abandoned at age 10, she has survived on her own in the marsh she calls home. A born naturalist with just 1 day of school, she takes life lessons from the land. But while she could have lived in solitude forever, the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Drawn to 2 young men from town, who are each intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world, until the unthinkable happens.
