Book discussion slated

The Literature at Lunch Book Club has selected “The House of the Spirits” by Isabel Allende for its next lunch time discussion. The meeting will take place at noon Jan. 12 at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd.

The novel chronicles the life of a family in Chile as the patriarch grows from a child to an elder. Through the story of the Trueba family, the reader follows Chilean history from the turn of the 20th century to the 1973 coup that resulted in the death of Isabel Allende’s uncle, Salvadore Allende, the democratically elected president. While the background is Chilean historical fiction, “The House of the Spirits” is a story of strong love, acceptance, betrayal, class prejudice and dreams.

The book club also chose the book to be read each month through June 8. Call or come by the library for a complete list of selections and the date each book will be discussed. The community is welcome to join the Literature at Lunch Book Club for a lively discussion and refreshments once each month.

The library is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It is closed Sunday and Monday. For more information call (530) 573-3185.
