A Tale for the TIme Being by Ruth OzekiThe Hamilton Roddis Memorial Library is continuing to host a Book Club this summer.

Our next summer offering  will be "A Tale for the Time Being" by Ruth Ozeki.  

 A time being is someone who lives in time, and that means you, and me, and every one of us who is, or was, or ever will be.”

In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao has decided there’s only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates’ bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun who’s lived more than a century. A diary is Nao’s only solace—and will touch lives in ways she can scarcely imagine.

Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.--Amazon

Our meeting will be Tuesday, August 19th at 6 PM. Light refreshments will be served.
