Morning Book Club: “The Pale Blue Eye” by Louis Bayard
October 18 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Join us for Morning Book Club on October 18, 2022 at 9:00 am at the Norway Memorial Library!
October’s selection is “The Pale Blue Eye” by Louis Bayard.
At West Point Academy in 1830, the calm of an October evening is shattered by the discovery of a young cadet’s body swinging from a rope. Augustus Landor – who acquired some renown in his years as a New York City police detective – is called in to discreetly investigate. It’s a baffling case Landor must pursue in secret, for the scandal could do irreparable damage to the fledgling institution. But he finds help from an unexpected ally – a moody, young cadet with a penchant for drink, two volumes of poetry to his name, and a murky past that changes from telling to telling. The strange and haunted Southern poet, for whom Landor develops a fartherly affection, is named Edgar Allan Poe.
