This month we will be reading The Dog Stars by Peter Heller.
Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. His wife is gone, his friends are dead, he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and to pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission somehow beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope deep inside him that a better life, something like his old life, exists beyond the airport.
Everyone is welcome to our monthly meeting, the third Wednesday of each month at 12:00 p.m. Bring a sack lunch, if you wish, and savor some lively discussion. We discuss a mixture of fiction and nonfiction books.
