October Book Club Meeting

Please join us on Tuesday, October 19, 2010 at 7 p.m. as we welcome Barry Broad to speak about his book, "Eve of Destruction". A review and synopsis of his book is below:

This is a spy thriller set in the present about a set of circumstances that is all too realistic. At the same time that an Iranian-led team of terrorists is plotting to set off a radiation-heavy dirty bomb in Los Angeles, a U.S. team is working clandestinely inside Iran to set up what looks like a Chernobyl-style accident at a secret nuclear weapons site to discredit and set back the Iranian nuclear program and foment unrest against the government. We're taken through the training and back stories of the various operatives on all sides, and they emerge as reasonably full-bodied characters rather than stick figures in an action plot. The book is so intricately plotted and credibly researched that it is difficult to believe that this is a first book for the author, a labor lobbyist in Sacramento. Like any number of spy stories, this is a diversion that will hold your attention, but will also be informative for most readers, especially as to just how vulnerable the United States, and particularly its ports, still is after a half-dozen years of bureaucratic homeland security efforts.

Mr. Broad will autograph his book which is available for purchase in the library for $15.00.
