This fall season plunge into one of the newest ways of reading – eBooks – with Fall eBook Club: A Season of Women, Intrigue & Abandonment. There will be one meeting per month from July through October and all will take place at 2:00 pm at the Blake Library, 2351 SE Monterey Road, Stuart.

Club participants will download book selections from Freading, MCLS’ newest free eBook service. Facilitated by Kimberly Carvel, no previous eReading experience is required. After each book club, members are encouraged to continue the discussion on the Martin County Library System Facebook page.

Fall eBook Club schedule:
• July 31 – Get started with eBooks. If you need help downloading your free checkout of the first title from Freading, bring your eReader, tablet or smartphone and come for this hands-on-demonstration with tech assistance by library staff.

• August 21The Keepers of the House by Shirley Ann Grau. This Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and modern classic is “a masterwork, a many-layered indictment of racism and rage that is as terrifying as it is wise.”

• September 18The Man Who Loved Children by Christina Stead is a chilling novel of family life, and the relations between parents and children and husbands and wives. It is acknowledged to be a contemporary classic.

• October 16Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons. Award winning, and an Oprah Book Club selection, Ellen Foster is about an eleven-year-old heroine who tells her unforgettable story with honesty, perceptivity, humor and unselfconscious heroism.
