Read and Eats Book Club at Main

Monthly “Read and Eats” Book Club at Main Library every 1st Thursday from 1-2pm.
Read the book then attend the book club meeting to discuss and share. July’s “Read” is “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline.

“Ready Player One” – In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he’s jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade’s devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world’s digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator’s obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade’s going to survive, he’ll have to win—and confront the real world he’s always been so desperate to escape.
