The selection for our virtual book club meeting in May is The Memory Police: A Novel by Yoko Ogawa.  On an unnamed island off an unnamed coast, objects are disappearing: first hats, then ribbons, birds, roses—until things become much more serious. Most of the island's inhabitants are oblivious to these changes, while those few imbued with the power to recall the lost objects live in fear of the draconian Memory Police, who are committed to ensuring that what has disappeared remains forgotten.  This Orwellian novel about the terrors of state surveillance is one of only six shortlisted books for the 2020 International Booker Prize.  

This will be a virtual event with an email link to join a Zoom meeting sent out ahead of time.  You will need a camera on your laptop, desktop, tablet or phone to be able to join the meeting.  You may want to go to Zoom.us ahead of time to download an app.  Zoom offers a free membership (the meeting host has a pro-membership so you don't have to worry about the 40 minute cap on the length of meetings that comes with the free membership).
