Escondido, CA -  Escondido Public Library invites adult readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room. This month’s title is The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obreht.

In a Balkan country mending from war, Natalia, a young doctor, is compelled to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather’s recent death. Searching for clues, she turns to his worn copy of The Jungle Book and the stories he told her of his encounters over the years with “the deathless man.” But most extraordinary of all is the story her grandfather never told her—the legend of the tiger’s wife.

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on February 10, 2015, with a discussion on March by Geraldine Brooks.  The title for March 10, 2015 will be The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud.

All library programs are free to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street in downtown Escondido. For more information about the 2nd Tuesday Book Club visit or contact the Library information desk at 760-839-4839.
