Brentwood Book Club
Tuesday, September 10 | 6:30 pm
September’s selection is American By Day by Derek B. Miller.
SHE KNEW IT WAS A WEIRD PLACE. She’d heard the stories, seen the movies, read the books. But now police Chief Inspector Sigrid Ødegård has to leave her native Norway and actually go there; to that land across the Atlantic where her missing brother is implicated in the mysterious death of a prominent African-American academic. AMERICA.
Sigrid is plunged into a United States where race and identity, politics and promise, reverberate in every aspect of daily life. Working with—or, if necessary, against—the police, she must negotiate the local political minefields and navigate the backwoods of the Adirondacks to uncover the truth before events escalate further. (Description from publisher).
The Brentwood Book Club meets on the second Tuesday of the month. Ask for a copy of the current selection at the desk. Newcomers are always welcome and no registration is required.
