Library Book Club

The book of the month club is an informal book club in which we have several copies of one book for our patrons to take out without any holds. There will be a discussion post on Facebook at the end of the month that you can participate in if you choose too.


Book of the Month

Cockroach by Rawi Hage

Cockroach takes place during one month of a bitterly cold winter in Montreal’s restless immigrant community, where a self-described “thief” has just tried but failed to commit suicide by hanging himself from a tree in a local park. Rescued against his will, the narrator is obliged to attend sessions with a well-intentioned but naïve therapist. This sets the story in motion, leading us back to the narrator’s violent childhood in a war-torn country, forward into his current life in the smoky émigré cafés, and out into the frozen nighttime streets of Montreal. Bold, haunting, and emotionally trenchant, Cockroach is a powerful story of immigrant experience, indignation, and unrelenting fortitude.
