Fireside Book Club

This month, the club has moved from the third Wednesday to the fourth Wednesday due to the holiday. They liked “Frankenstein” so much, they thought they’d like “Dracula” even better.

Everyone is invited from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28, at the Idyllwild Library to discuss the novel.

Amazon said, “The novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so he may find new blood and spread undead curse, and the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing... The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism.”

A few copies of the book are available at the library front desk.

Idyllwild Indivisible

Beth Caskie, labor relations representative for the California School Employees Association, is the speaker at the next Idyllwild Indivisible meeting.

She also is a councilwoman on the Palm Springs City Council and a director of the Woman Leaders Forum.

The talk is at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, at the Idyllwild Library.
