Lynnwood Book Club to discuss 'Started Early, Took My Dog' on May 13

The Lynnwood Book Club will discuss “Started Early, Took My Dog” at 7 p.m., May 13 at the Lynnwood Library.

In Kate Atkinson’s book, Jackson (semiretired at 50) is doing some private detective work and trying to come to grips with his personal life, which includes a teenage daughter from his first marriage, a son with a former lover, and a second wife who stole his savings.

Jackson adds a small dog to the mix by rescuing it from its abusive owner as he undertakes an “innocent” request from a woman in Australia: Could Jackson help her find her birth parents in England?

Newcomers are always welcome at the club’s monthly meetings.
