Bookworm Burrows Deep

Busy week at The Bookworm

If you’re into book groups and book discussions, this is your week. The Bookworm in Countryside Village at 87th and Pacific hosts four discussion groups and a signing this week. It begins Thursday, Nov. 11, when Amiable Adult Readers Discussing Books Almost Always Read by Kids discuss Unwind by Neal Shusterman; it’s a sci-fi chiller about teenagers in a world where kids are salvaged for their body parts. Can they make it to their 18th birthdays? Stop in at 6 p.m. to find out. Saturday, November 13, The Sherlock Holmes Book Club will meet at 10 a.m. to discuss “The Noble Bachelor,” a short story from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. All Sherlockians, old or new to the canon, are welcomed. Fans of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy meet at 11 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, to discuss the first book in the series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Yes, the book is filled with characters with unpronounceable names, but you owe it to yourself to check it out before the American movie version arrives next year (the Swedish version’s already on DVD). Author Mark Kratina will visit the store Sunday, from 1-3 p.m. to sign copies of his new book, The Nostalgist, a legal thriller set in Nebraska. Finally, the International Intrigue Book Discussion group meets at the Bookworm Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 6:30 p.m. to discuss Jonathan Rabb’s Shadow and Light, described as “an electrifying thriller set in a darkly beautiful Berlin poised on the edge of destruction.” For more information on these or other events, call the store at 392.2877 or visit Comments?
