How to Participate:

Complete the Registration for the Program here.

Our book club reads each book together in sections that we discuss each week. For this series, we’ve divided the book into four sections. Each week, we’ll read a pre-determined segment and come together for 45-60 minutes to discuss our thoughts on what we’ve read, what questions we have, what we hope to see happen and more. Please plan to attend all five of the meetings in the series.

Meeting Dates: (Please plan to attend all 5 meetings)

Upon registration you’ll receive details for our first Zoom meeting. Join us as we get to know one another at our first meeting. After attending the first meeting, participants will receive their link to redeem on Kindle, and/or physical copies of the the book depending on their choice in the registration process. We will also provide the reading schedule and any additional relevant information.

Get Your Book

The USO will provide a Kindle version of the book or a physical copy of the book to everyone who attends our first meeting.

All ebooks will be sent via email with a unique, free single-use link to download onto any device, including a phone, ipad/table, computer or Kindle. Instructions will be included with the link. All physical books will be ordered and shipped directly to the address you provide in your registration. Join in Our Discussions

We’ll divide the book into sections to discuss at each meeting. (The following four Tuesday evenings after the initial meeting) During those meetings, we’ll discuss what’s happening in the story, catch up with one another, and touch on other related topics.

Additional details for this session’s reading will be provided after the first meeting. Understanding that shipping physical copies may cut into reading time, the first section of reading will intentionally be shorter than the others.

About the Book

Dissolution is an utterly riveting portrayal of Tudor England.

The year is 1537, and the country is divided between those faithful to the Catholic Church and those loyal to the king and the newly established Church of England. When a royal commissioner is brutally murdered in a monastery on the south coast of England, Thomas Cromwell, Henry VIII’s feared vicar general, summons fellow reformer Matthew Shardlake to lead the inquiry. Shardlake and his young protégé uncover evidence of misconduct, embezzlement, and treason, and when two other murders are revealed, they must move quickly to prevent the killer from striking again.
