Twentythirtysomething Book Club (TTBC) Fall Selections

Fall for Twentythirtysomething Book Club (TTBC), a DC Public Library book group for younger adults, this autumn as we dig into the following titles:

Charles Lindbergh’s transatlantic flight and Babe Ruth’s home run record are just two of the historic events that took place across the remarkable handful of months that Bill Bryson explores in his 2013 nonfiction title “One Summer: America, 1927,” our September 23
selection.

In our October 28 selection, E.L. Doctorow’s 1975 novel “Ragtime,” fictional characters mingle with Sigmund Freud, Emma Goldman, Harry Houdini, and other real life historical figures as Doctorow explores life in early 20th century America.

Working as an English teacher at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, Suki Kim secretly chronicled her experiences to produce her 2014 nonfiction title “Without You, There is No Us,” a look at life in contemporary North Korea that is our November 18 selection.

The September and October meetings will take place at breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave. NW), and the November meeting location is TBD. All meetings will start at 7:30 p.m.

West End ducks: what happened to the female duck?

I’ve been watching the ducks at the Park Hyatt since I started working here in the West End about a month ago, and I haven’t seen the female of the mating pair in a couple of weeks. I know it’s a long shot, but does anyone know if she is okay or if anything happened to her?

Twentythirtysomething Book Club (TTBC) Summer Selections

Join Twentythirtysomething Book Club (TTBC), a DC Public Library book group for younger adults, for a summer of great reads!

In our June 25 selection, Teju Cole’s novel “Every Day is for the Thief,” a young Nigerian man returns to Lagos after living in New York City and, as he wanders the city and re-connects with various individuals, he considers his past, his future, and the state of his homeland.

In our August 27 selection, Celeste Ng’s 2014 novel “Everything I Never Told You,” the mysterious death of sixteen-year-old Lydia Lee threatens to unravel her family, whose members are burdened already by past conflicts, ongoing tensions, and long held secrets.
