Claremont Book Club @Claremont

In 1955, British author Catherine Storr wrote a humorous children’s book to help her daughter Cecilia, nicknamed Polly, feel a bit more brave. The resulting work, Clever Polly an the Stupid Wolf, has never been out of print and was described in a recent Guardian article as reading “like a feminist reworking of Little Red Riding Hood“ and as being wonderfully contemporary, with no helpless little girls or doddering grannies.

Claremont Book Club @Claremont

Join the Claremont Book Club tonight on this special date and time! We meet on the second Tuesday at 5:30p.m to discuss Blindsided, a novel by Karis Walsh. We have a very limited supply of bookclub copies for this month. Please contact Shani at the Claremont branch if you'd like help reserving a copy of the book, which can be found in the Berkeley Public Library's collection and also in Link+. We hope you can make this talk!! The book group meets every other month to discuss a book we choose together!
