The next Book Ends book discussion group will be held at the Jackson County Public Library on Thursday, Jan.13. The book selection is Time and Again by Jack Finney.
Time and Again is told in the first person by Simon Morley, a 28-year-old artist working in a 1970s Manhattan advertising agency who is approached to join a covert government operation exploring the possibility of time travel. Recruited as having the right stuff, Si begins to learn about the project and its goals.
Initially recruited to explore San Francisco prior to the 1906 earthquake, Si manages to convince his superiors to allow him to investigate 1880s New York. Simon’s motive for choosing New York is to witness the mailing of an envelope. An event Simon hopes may explain a family mystery of his girlfriend Kate.
There will be extra copies of Time and Again available at the library for patrons to read prior to the discussion. Call the library at 828.586.2016 for more information. This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Main Library.
