Sight Unseen Book Discussion
Event Location: Friends Room
Contact: staff   860-644-1541
sandyw@libraryconnection.info
The Summer Reading Program for 2018 is Libraries Rock! We've provided a suggested summer reading list of books that have some type of music connection. Tonight's book discussion will be about Sight Unseen by Iris and Roy Johansen, one of the books from the list. The protagonist, Kendra Michaels, had been blind for decades and has remarkable observation skills. She can now see, but the FBI and CIA have used her skills to solve some of their cases. In this book, Kendra realizes that someone is repeating some of her more famous murder cases. The Johansens have written a suspenseful story with several areas of discussion. If you have read this, please join us tonight whether you liked the book or not! It's much more interesting to discuss books that do not appeal to everyone. Copies of the book are available at the library. Registration is not necessary.
