Coming Soon Book Club

Coming Soon Book Club

Each month we will read (or mostly read) a book that is going to be made into a movie or tv series. We'll discuss what we think about the casting choices, adaptability of the source material, or what your directorial choices would be. The book club will meet at New World Tavern at 56 Main Street in Plymouth. Copies of the book are available at Plymouth Public Library. 

This month we will read "Red, White & Royal Blue" by Casey McQuiston.

When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius―his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic.
