Our meeting on July 19th will be our last for now as we are closing our Westfield premises on July 31st, and preparing to move into our new home  above Plush sofas in King Street Warrawong. For this meeting there has been a change of book. We will be reading a book the group has wanted to tackle for a long time The girl with the dragon tattoo by Stieg Larsson.  There are two key plots in this book. The first centres on the disapppearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, the daughter of one of the wealthiest familes in Sweden, and her octogenerian uncle who is determined to find out the truth about  her disappearance which he believes to be murder. The second concerns Mikael Blomkvist, a journalist at the wrong end of a libel case, who has been hired to get to the bottom of Harriet’s disappearance. His companion on this task is Lisbeth Salander, a genious hacker,  and a somewhat ruthless person. The book  is a combination of murder mystery, family saga, love and financial intrigue. It will be interesting to see how how our comments compare with those of the Dapto group who have just read the book.  If you would like to take part in the discussion of this book on July 19th ask for your copy at the library. New members are always welcome to join the group.
