Please note, our July meeting is cancelled as it falls on a holiday. 

For our meeting in August, we'll be reading Cat, by Freya North. This title is a bit of a departure from our past books, and will be a blast to dissect and discuss! Author's description:

She’s in for the ride of her life.

Her career is stuck in a rut.

Her love life has been a tangle.

But fortune favours the brave…

When journalist Cat McCabe lands a job reporting on the Tour de France she’s confident it might give her stuttering career the boost it needs and provide a welcome distraction from a messy break-up. Or so she hopes.

She quickly realizes Le Tour is not just all about the bikes. Large bulges, huge egos, lashings of Lycra and plenty of sexy shenanigans play their part and, soon enough, her own life starts to mirror the high peaks and perilous lows of the race as she battles for more than just a scoop.

Whatever happens, it’s going to be the ride of her life.
With sex, drugs, and egos, the soap opera that is the Tour de France unfolds, with Cat’s life frequently mirroring the peaks and perils of the race.

Pick up a copy of Cat at Golden Gate! Please call 510-597-5023 or email esanders@oaklandlibrary.org to make sure copies are available.
