Learning To Swim is Palmdale Library’s Mystery Book Club Next Selection

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

PALMDALE – The Palmdale City Library’s Mystery Book Discussion Group “Mystery, Murder and Mayhem” will discuss the book Learning to Swim by Sara J. Henry on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 7 pm, at the Larry Chimbole Cultural Center,38350 Sierra Highway. 

When she sees what looks like a child tumbling from a ferry into frigid Lake Champlain, Troy Chance dives in without thinking. When she gets the child to shore she discovers that his name is Paul, he speaks only French—and no one seems to be looking for him. Her determination to protect Paul pulls Troy from her quiet life in a small Adirondack town into an unfamiliar world of wealth and privilege in Canada and then in Vermont. Her attachment to him—and the danger she faces when she tries to unravel the mystery of his abandonment—force her to evaluate everything she thought true about herself.

Learning to Swim is Sara J. Henry’s first novel.   It won the 2012 Anthony Award and 2012 Agatha Award for best first novel. 

The Mystery, Murder and Mayhem Mystery Book Discussion Group meets the third Wednesday of the month at 7 pm, at the Larry Chimbole Cultural Center.  The group is open to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.   The discussion also provides disabled access with 72 hours’ notice.  To request special aids for the disabled or for more information, please call the Palmdale City Library at 661/267-5600 or TDD 267-5167.
