Join us for NovelTea Book Club on the second Thursday of every month. Enjoy tea and treats provided by the Menomonee Falls Library Friends while reading a fiction book. Copies of each book will be available at the second floor information desk at least four weeks before the discussion.
This month we are discussing Miss Benson’s Beetle by Rachel Joyce. It is 1950. London is still reeling from World War II, and Margery Benson is just trying to get through life. But one day, she reaches her breaking point, abandoning her job to set out on an expedition in search of an insect that may or may not exist: the golden beetle of New Caledonia. The assistant Margery hires, Enid Pretty, is not the companion she had in mind. But together they will find themselves drawn into an adventure that exceeds all expectations: a voyage to a remote island covered with dense jungle--the last place two proper British ladies would expect to find themselves.
