Late Edition Book Club: Tuesday, April 17, 6:00 p.m.  

Join us for a lively discussion of "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern. Enter the world of Le Cirque des Rêves, a traveling circus that enchants all the guests who visit and doubles as the venue for a duel between two young magicians. No one knows about the battle aside from their instructors, but soon, lives are in danger and chaos erupts. Morgenstern puts her readers into the perspectives of extraordinary characters and uses vivid descriptive language to tell a story of love, magic, and mystery.

Books are available on reserve at the circulation desk for check out.
