September's selection is Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. The Major leads a quiet life valuing the proper things that Englishmen have lived by for generations: honor, duty, decorum, and a properly brewed cup of tea. But then his brother's death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village. Drawn together by their shared love of literature and the loss of their respective spouses, the Major and Mrs. Ali soon find their friendship blossoming into something more. But village society insists on embracing him as the quintessential local and her as the permanent foreigner. Can their relationship survive the risks one takes when pursuing happiness in the face of culture and tradition? A limited number of copies of the book are available at the library. For more information contact the Turlock Library Reference Desk at 664-8100. Book clubs allow community members to expand their knowledge of books and other reading material through meaningful discussions with others.
