The featured novel for this month’s gathering is “Treasure Island”, written by Robert Louis Stevenson. The meeting will be held at 3pm on Tuesday, February 27th.

“Treasure Island”, penned by R.L. Stevenson, follows a shipwrecked young man along his adventure to overcome the odds. The protagonist, Jim Hawkins, is a 12-year old boy who came upon a treasure map created by a pirate, Captain Flint. Inspired by his newfound discovery, Hawkins and friends set off on an adventure to try and get their hands on this hidden treasure. When he arrives on the island, Hawkins is met by a fearsome crew of former crew members of Captain Flint, who were also on the prowl for the promised treasure. After being kidnapped by these pesky pirates, Hawkins and friends have to plan their escape while still managing to keep their treasures in hand. A gripping saga of epic proportions, guests of all ages and interests will no doubt be enchanted by this beloved classic.
