Laguna Book Club – April Title

The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett – ©1930

Book Club Title April 2009

Book Club Title April 2009

A treasure worth killing for, Sam Spade, a slightly shopworn private eye with his own solitary code of ethics. A perfumed grafter names Joel Cairo, a fat man named Gutman, and Brigid O’Shaughnessy, a beautiful and treacherous woman whose loyalties shift at the drop of a dime. These are the ingredients of Dashiell Hammett’s coolly glittering gem of detective fiction, a novel that has haunted generations of readers.

We will meet on Tuesday, April 21, 2009, at the Laguna Public Library from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. A few copies of the book are available at the library for check-out. The book club is a way to share thoughts and opinions of a variety of books with members of the community and enjoy the happiness of reading.
