Need a good suggestion for your book discussion group? Read The Big Little Lie by Liane Moriarty it is set in contemporary Australia with characters galore to explore and discuss. It is a funny story with a fund raising quiz night that didn’t go quite as smoothly as our Chili Bowl did but has some great ideas for next year. I mean the costumes not the other thing that happens at quiz night.
If you like great storytelling then Nevil Shute and Bryce Courtenay are two authors you should try. They are available on Ebooks using the www. montanalibrary2go.org plus your library card number to check them out. The library has quite a good collection of Bryce Courtenay novels on CD. His stories are written to be read aloud and I love listening to those Australia accents.
