The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi

In the near future, the Colorado River has dwindled to a trickle. Detective, assassin, and spy, Angel Velasquez “cuts” water for the Southern Nevada Water Authority, ensuring that its lush arcology developments can bloom in Las Vegas. When rumors of a game-changing water source surface in Phoenix, Angel is sent south, hunting for answers that seem to evaporate as the heat index soars and the landscape becomes more and more oppressive. There, he encounters Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist with her own agenda, and Maria Villarosa, a young Texas migrant, who dreams of escaping north. As bodies begin to pile up, the three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger and more corrupt than they could have imagined, and when water is more valuable than gold, alliances shift like sand, and the only truth in the desert is that someone will have to bleed if anyone hopes to drink.


Meet one Thursday a month to discuss great books with your neighbors. We've been meeting for five years, and welcome new members.

In the event of inclement weather, the meeting will be one week following the scheduled meeting, held at the same time and place.

NEW POLICY FOR BOOK GROUPS: To streamline our services, we are requiring book group members to reserve the assigned book under their individual library card. You may place a hold yourself, or call a librarian to do it for you. When the book arrives, you will be notified by email or phone. If you have any questions, please call us at 693-6614. Thank you for your cooperation.

Reading the books before attending the meeting is strongly recommended.

Bring your books and your lunch, and the library will provide discussion leaders and refreshments courtesy of the Friends of the Dobbs Ferry Library
