Escondido, CA -  Escondido Public Library invites adult readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on Tuesday, September 9, 2014, at 6:00 PM in the Turrentine Room. This month’s selection is Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan.

Cambridge student Serena Frome's beauty and intelligence make her the ideal recruit for M15. The year is 1972. The Cold War is far from over. England's legendary intelligence agency is determined to manipulate the cultural conversation by funding writers whose politics align with those of the government. The operation is code named "Sweet Tooth." Serena, a compulsive reader of novels, is the perfect candidate to infiltrate the literary circle of a promising young writer named Tom Haley. At first, she loves the stories. Then she begins to love the man. How long can she conceal her undercover life? To answer that question, Serena must abandon the first rule of espionage: trust no one.

The 2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on October 14, 2014, with a discussion on the 2014 One Book, One San Diego title, Monstress by Lysley Tenorio.   In observance of Veterans Day, the 2nd Tuesday Book Club will not meet on November 11, 2014.   The selection for December 9, 2014 will be nonfiction title, Destiny of the Republic: a tale of madness, medicine and the murder of a president by Candice Millard. 

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 library.escondido.org or contact the Library information desk at 760-839-4839.
