FOLK Book Club to discuss ‘Euphoria’

Friends of the Libraries, Kona Book Club meets at 11 a.m. Tuesday on the Kailua-Kona Public Library lanai.

This month’s selection is “Euphoria” by Lily King.

Inspired by events in the life of revolutionary anthropologist Margaret Mead, “Euphoria” is King’s nationally bestselling breakout novel on three young, gifted anthropologists of the 1930s caught in a passionate love triangle that threatens their bonds, their careers, and, ultimately, their lives.

The book club next meets in April to discuss “Death Comes to the Fair” by Catherine Lloyd. Lloyd is a Big Island resident and will be in attendance.

Travel book club meets Tuesday

Kona Stories hosts a travel book club discussing “Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica” by Sara Wheeler on Tuesday.

The group meets at 6:30 p.m. at the store. Book groups are free if books are purchased at Kona Stories, or a $5 donation is requested.


It is the coldest, windiest, driest place on earth, an icy desert of unearthly beauty and stubborn impenetrability. For centuries, Antarctica has captured the imagination of our greatest scientists and explorers, lingering in the spirit long after their return. “Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica” is a book about the call of the wild and the response of the spirit to a country that exists perhaps most vividly in the mind. Wheeler spent seven months in Antarctica, living with its scientists and dreamers.
