Final Book Club of Semester to be Held

APRIL 27, 2007--The final Lion's Paw Book Club for the semester at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls will discuss Margaret Atwood's "Oryx and Crake" on May 9 from 3-4 p.m. in the second floor breezeway of the Chalmer Davee Library on campus.

UWRF Library Director Valerie Malzachar will lead the discussion. The futuristic tale focuses on the character of Jimmy, or Snowman, as the last man on earth. Through flashbacks, the reader learns about his best friend Crake, who develops a kind of super race of genetically engineered children through ambiguous bioengineering experiments, his personal assistant and a former child prostitute called Oryx.     

Anyone is welcome to attend and need not have read the books to sit in. All books used for discussion are available in the University Bookstore and several copies are also within the library's collection.
