** Program Description**  

(Note the date change from Feb. 11th to Feb. 18th)

The Library Book Club will be meeting Sunday February 18, 2018 at 1pm in the Library Conference Room. We will be discussing Where'd you go Bernadette, by Maria Semple. Books can be picked up at the Library circulation desk.

"A compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world.

Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom. 

Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic. 

To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence - creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter's role in an absurd world."
