Making a New Year's commitment to watch less television and read more books? Start here! Common Grounds Book Group will meet Saturday, February 24, 10:30 am at the Nine Muses Cafe at Kansas City Public Library, 14 W. 10th St., Kansas City, MO, 816-701-3683.
Our first book is Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living by Carrie Tiffany.
It's a first novel set in Depression era Australia. The government's "Better Farming Train" is chugging it's way across the wheat fields and small towns of the Outback, with a staff of eccentric, scientific and romantic characters. Two of them fall in love and try to put the advice they've been doling out to good use with mixed results.
