Monday, November 18 - Prairie Bay

The 1950s ocean liner Queen Isabella is making her final voyage—a retro cruise from Long Beach to Hawaii and back—before heading to the scrapyard. For the guests on board, it’s a chance to experience a bygone era of decadent luxury, complete with fine dining, classic highballs, string quartets, and sophisticated jazz. Smoking is allowed but not cell phones—or children, for that matter. But this is the second decade of an uncertain new millennium, not the sunny, heedless mid-twentieth century, and certain disquieting signs of strife and malfunction above and below deck intrude on the festivities, throwing a trio of strangers together in an unexpected and startling test of character.

Pick up your copy of this book today at the Brainerd Public Library front desk by asking for the Books, Burgers, and Brews once the title has been selected.  The books at the library are first come first serve and we have 25 copies set aside for this event.  Participants that use the library for the book selection are asked to return the book once they have completed reading so someone else will be able to check the title out. Other options are listing to the book on audio, or purchasing on line.

 

Please RSVP for this event as space is limited.
