–Join the Paso Robles City Library’s Book Group on Thursday, April 18, from 7-8 p.m., for a discussion of A Girl’s Guide to Missiles by Karen Piper. Booklist magazine describes this nonfiction work as, “A surreal and poignant coming of age on a secretive missile facility, and an incredible view of life in a town built for war.”

Piper’s memoir is a search for the truth of the past and what really brought her parents to China Lake with two young daughters, a story that reaches back to her father’s World War II flights across Europe. It recounts the crossroads moment in a young woman’s life when she finally found a way out of a culture of secrets and fear, and out of the desert.

The Library’s Book Club is for readers ages 16+ and meets monthly throughout the year. Signups are not necessary. For more information, call Karen Christiansen at (805) 237-3870.
