"It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values-- the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty. But there's something about the sensation of ink on paper that is in some sense a thing, a phenomenon rather than an epiphenomenon. I can't break the association of electric trash with the computer screen. Words on the screen give the sense of being just another passing electronic wriggle."

—John Hoyer Updike (b. 1932) American writer, Rabbit, Run, Rabbit at Rest

This month's selection is "Doc" by Mary Doria Russell. "Doc" is a tale of historical fiction that tells of the unlikely friendship between Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp. This friendship begins before the infamous gunfight at the OK Corral links their names forever in American frontier mythology. "Doc" was selected for its appeal across age and gender lines as well as Doc Holliday’s regional ties to Leadville and Glenwood Springs.

This month's selection is this years pick for One Book, One Valley.

Light refreshments will be served, all are welcome to attend.
