The adult book club for the Alpine Branch of the Lincoln County Library system has been in operation since 2009. We meet the first Thursday of each month at 6:30pm in the community room of the Alpine Branch library. All are welcome!
We will meet in the virtual world, using UberConference,
for our Book Club discussions during these COVID-19 times.
Our July Book (July 2):
The Tenth Muse by Catherine Chung. From childhood, Katherine knows she is different, and that her parents are not who they seem to be. But in becoming a mathematician, she must face the most human of problems—who is she? What is the cost of love, and what is the cost of ambition?
On her quest to conquer the Riemann Hypothesis, the greatest unsolved mathematical problem of her time, she turns to a theorem with a mysterious history that holds both the lock and key to her identity, and to secrets long buried during World War II in Germany. Forced to confront some of the most consequential events of the twentieth century and rethink everything she knows of herself, she strives to take her place in the world of higher mathematics and finds kinship in the stories of the women who came before her—their love of the language of numbers connecting them across generations.
