Book of the Month: "The Sunday Philosophy Club" by Alexander McCall Smith

Adults Drop-in

A Scottish detective and a cast of quirky characters make for a perfect Book of the Month pick at our Athens Branch!

Perfect for a cold winter, this first title in a long series features the curious philosopher and woman detective Isabel Dalhousie. Isabel is attending a concert in the Usher Hall when she witnesses a man fall from the upper balcony and can’t help wondering whether it was the result of mischance or mischief. Against the best advice of her no-nonsense housekeeper Grace, her bassoon playing friend Jamie, and even her romantically challenged niece Cat, she is morally bound to solve this case.

Each Book of the Month selection comes with a set of comments and questions to get you thinking deeper about the book - before, during or after you read it! Stop by the Athens Branch anytime in February to pick up your copy, or give the Branch a call with any questions.
