2nd Tuesday Book Club to Discuss The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin

Escondido, CA - Escondido Public Library invites adult readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on Tuesday, May 13, 2014, at 6:00 PM in the Board Room. This month’s selection is The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin.

Set against the rugged beauty of Washington State at the turn of the twentieth century, Amanda Coplin’s debut novel, The Orchardist, introduces readers to William Talmadge and his lovingly cultivated apple and apricot orchards. Coplin’s characters are deeply rooted in the mystery of the American West. She brings them together, like the grafting of Talmadge’s trees, to form a unique family bound not by blood but by the shared experience of tragedy, the land, and ultimately fate.

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on June 10, 2014, with discussion of a classic, The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.  The selection for July 8, 2014, will be a short story collection, Damage Control, by Amber Dermont.

This program is sponsored by Friends of Escondido Public Library.  All Library programs are free and open to the public.  Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in downtown Escondido.
