Book Clubbers Say...

Book Clubbers came in from the rain on Monday night to discuss The Soloist by Steve Lopez. Though the group had mixed reviews of the book, Lopez's journalistic portrayal of a homeless classical music prodigy provided plenty of fodder for discussion.
"It was a book that raised interesting questions about the dynamics between journalists and their subjects, as well as the issues of poverty and mental health that are so relevant today," said Ann Welsh, a Bookshelf Book Club member.
The movie was not at all true to the story, said other book club members who were glad to have read the book after being disappointed by the movie.
Young readers are invited to the next book club discussion on Oct. 5 at 6:30 . We will be discussing Rick Riordan's Lightning Thief, the first book in Riordan's popular Percy Jackson series. (And a head's up for November: My Antonia by Willa Cather)
