Books at your fingertips
Books on Tap, the Phoenixville Public Library’s book discussion group for 20s and 30s, will meet at the Great American Pub, 148 Bridge St., Phoenixville, on Tuesday, May 31 at 7:00 p.m. The group will discuss “Gideon the Ninth”, Tamsyn Muir’s award-winning bestseller. The Emperor needs necromancers. The Ninth Necromancer needs a swordsman. Gideon, raised by hostile former vassals and countless skeletons, is ready to give up a life of servitude and an afterlife as a reanimated corpse. She packs up her sword, her shoes, her dirty magazines and prepares to run away. But her childhood nemesis won’t set her free without demanding a favor. Copies of the book can be reserved at www.ccls.org. Copies of eBooks and audiobooks can be reserved at https://chester.overdrive.com. This event is free and open to the public. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Email Christine Shaffer at [email protected] for more information.
