The book group will be reading The Circle, by Dave Eggers. The group will meet at the home of Kristen Pappas Kurtz, 16 Ardley Road at 7:30 pm on Monday, December 7.
Here is a brief description of the book: When Mae Holland is hired to work for the Circle, the world's most powerful internet company, she feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The Circle, run out of a sprawling California campus, links users' personal emails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency. What begins as the captivating story of one woman's ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge.
