November 9 Book Club Pick: The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger by Stephen King

The next Book Club Pick is The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger by Stephen King. All are welcome to join in the discussion after school on Thursday, November 9. If you need a copy of the book, talk to Ms. Charpentier or visit the Uxbridge Free Public Library.

From Goodreads: "Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is King's most visionary feat of storytelling, a magical mix of science fiction, fantasy, and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. In The Gunslinger, King introduces his most enigmatic hero, Roland Deschain of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger. He is a haunting, solitary figure at first, on a mysterious quest through a desolate world that eerily mirrors our own. Pursuing the man in black, an evil being who can bring the dead back to life, Roland is a good man who seems to leave nothing but death in his wake."

The rest of the meetings for first semester are below. Make sure you're at the December meeting to suggest books for second semester!
