Carson City’s Community Read

Capital City Reads is Carson City Library’s annual city-wide book club that brings people together through the reading and discussion of a common book. This event is an annual celebration sponsored by the Friends of the Carson City Library that runs in conjunction with National Library Week in April.

This year’s title is A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles.

“When, in 1922, thirty-year old Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, he is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel near the Kremlin. An indomitable man of erudition and wit, Rostov must now live in an attic room as some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history unfold. Unexpectedly, the Count’s reduced circumstances provide him entry into a world of emotional discovery as he forges friendships with the hotel’s denizens.” –from back cover

Copies will be available at the Carson City Library throughout the month of April 2024, while supplies last. Audiobook and eBook versions are available from the library’s Libby collection.

There will be two opportunities to discuss this year’s title during our Off The Shelf Book Club meetings on Thursday, April 18 and Tuesday, April 23 at 5:30 PM. No registration is required to attend.
