Adults who enjoy reading novels written for teens are invited to relax over refreshments and discuss a book chosen by club members.
After this month's discussion of the novel Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo, we'll watch the pilot from the 1970s TV series.
We encourage you to read the book in advance. Ask for a copy at the circulation desk.
In the story, Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law--risking exile--to save a mere mortal, Alia Keralis. Even worse, Alia is no ordinary girl; and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.
Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn't know she's being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by Diana, a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength who is forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer--a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.
Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies--mortal and divine--determined to either possess or destroy the Warbringer. If Diana and Alia have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
