Open Book Club: The Essex Serpent

Our Open Book Club had a great discussion about Timothy Egan's The Big Burn. This month, we'll be reading the multiple award-winning novel The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry!

Set in late nineteenth-century England, The Essex Serpent features an intellectually minded young widow, a pious vicar, and a rumored mythical serpent. It's acclaimed for its insightful and charming exploration of questions about science and religion, skepticism and faith, and independence and love.

The next meeting will be Monday, June 18th at 6:30pm, and copies of The Essex Serpent are available in our store. Newcomers are welcome!
