Book group to meet

MARQUETTE — The Peter White Library Book Group will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Dandelion Cottage Room at the library to discuss “The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper” by Phaedra Patrick.

Since Miriam, his wife of 40 years, died a year ago, 69-year-old Arthur Pepper stopped living until he finds a gold charm bracelet he’d never seen before tucked inside one of her shoes. The first of the bracelet’s eight charms is a bejeweled elephant inscribed with a phone number. He calls it and is shocked to learn that Miriam once lived in India.

He sets about exploring the other charms-including a tiger, a locket, and a thimble — which take him from Yorkshire to a manor house in Bath long past its glory days, and further afield, to London and Paris.

Those attending can bring a charm bracelet to share. The public is welcome. Call 228-9953.
