The Palmdale City Library will host the next meeting of the African-American Authors Book Club to discuss the book "No One Is Coming to Save Us" by Stephanie Powell Watts on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 6:45 p.m.

Inspired by "The Great Gatsby," the novel is set in the contemporary South and follows the difficulties endured by an extended black family with colliding visions of the American dream. Watts’ first novel, "No One Is Coming to Save Us" presents a universally resonant story with an intimate glimpse into the hearts of one family.

The African American Authors Book Club meets the third Tuesday of every month at 6:45 pm. New members are welcome to attend.

The Palmdale City Library, 700 E. Palmdale Blvd., is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

For more information, call the library at (661) 267-5600, TDD 267-5167, or visit www.cityofpalmdale.org/library.
