Book discussion

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Discussion Group and the Mystery Book Club will meet the last week of January at the Wauseon Public Library. The Sci-Fi Group will meet on Monday, Jan. 27 at 6:30 p.m. while the Mystery Group will meet on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 6:30 p.m. The Science Fiction & Fantasy Group will meet in the library’s second floor meeting room while the Mystery Club will meet in the board room. Both book discussion groups are also free and open to everyone.

The Sci-Fi Book Discussion Group will be discussing Patricia Briggs’ “Frost Burned,” the seventh novel in the Mercy Thompson Series. The discussion will be facilitated by Library Director Amy Murphy.

According to the book jacket, “Mercy Thompson’s life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman - the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack - has made her a stepmother to his daughter Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy’s life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more…”

The Mystery Book Discussion Group will be discussing John Grisham’s first novel, “A Time to Kill,” in anticipation of its February discussion on his latest novel and the sequel titled, “Sycamore Row.”

According to the book jacket, “The life of a ten-year-old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town of Clanton in Ford County, Miss., reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her black father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own outraged hands.” The library has ordered copies of the book discussion books, so each group member may have one. Stop by the library, and pick up your copy today.

Tea for Two or more

January is National Hot Tea Month. The library will be celebrating Hot Tea Month and kicking off the Chinese New Year with a Hot Tea Sampling Day on Friday, January 31, beginning at 10:30 a.m. and running throughout the day. Come on in and get out of the cold, and try a variety of teas!

The Hot Tea Sampling Day is free and is open to everyone. The library will provide hot water and a variety of teas to try, sample, and hopefully, enjoy! In addition to the sampling, the library will also have books on display, so you can learn more about tea, its history, and its healing effects.
