November Book Discussion

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon will be discussed on Monday, November 28th at 7:00 p.m. at the library.

This book was published in 2003 by British author Mark Haddon and won the 2003 Whitbread Book of the Year. The story is primarily a narrative told from the point of view of "Christopher", a 15 year old sleuth who lives with his father in the town of Swindon. Christopher has Asperger's syndrome, is interested in math, physics, computers, and solving crimes. He takes it upon himself to dtermine who slew his neighbor's poodle, Wellington. This is a charming book, told from the point of view of a bright, quirky young man.
