Attention all lovers of literature! Stay tuned to find out how to connect with a host of regional readers in this month’s installment of the Trenton Free Public Library’s Adult Book Club.

Book Club is back for September, and this month’s selection will be pleasing. The club will meet on Tuesday, September 26th, at 3 p.m. The club will take place at the Trenton Free Public Library’s Community Room, located at the library’s main campus at 120 Academy Street, Trenton, NJ 08608. This month’s selection will be “The Sisters Brothers,” a novel by Patrick Dewitt. All adult residents of Trenton are welcome to participate in the meeting, so be sure to swing by for an engaging afternoon of discussion.

“The Sisters Brothers” is an adventurous tale of the Wild West in the 1850s. This novel follows the saga of Eli and Charlie Sisters, two henchmen tasked with the demise of Hermann Kermit Warm. These brothers were assigned this daunting task by a powerful and mysterious man known only as “the Commodore.” While Charlie is accustomed to a life of killing and raucous adventure, his brother Eli does not share the same enthusiasm for this way of life. Nonetheless, they went on their arduous journey from Oregon City to Sacramento, where their target held their gold-mining claim.

While on the road, Eli begins to ponder who he is, what he does, and on whose behalf he’s doing the killing. Dewitt’s “The Sisters Brothers” tackles the world of westerns with humor and grit, offering a refreshing take on this beloved genre. Described as “weirdly funny” and “startlingly violent,” no doubt this selection will touch any reader’s heart.
