The Crandall Library is closed today, so our discussion for Twelve Years a Slave has been postponed until next Wednesday. Thankfully, the Buddha in the Attic looks like a quick read. If anyone would like to get a jump on the reading, we have copies available at the Park Reference Desk. Be safe!
Right now, it looks like we could get snow on Wednesday, so please call in advance to make sure that we are still meeting. I booked the Crandall Room for us for Wednesday, February 12th at 7pm in case we can’t meet on our normal day. Please note the slightly later start time. I hope to see everyone on Wednesday!
Stop by and pick up a copy of The Buddha in the Attic for our March discussion!
We’ve selected titles for the next four months, and the bookmarks with summaries are available to pick up. As always, you can pick books up at the Park Reference Desk.
January 2014 Mennonite in a Little Black Dress
February 2014 Twelve Years a Slave
March 2014 The Buddha in the Attic

This is the story of Maddie, a young woman who falls in love and marries Lane Morimoto just before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The young couple face discrimination and hate due to Lane’s Japanese heritage and are forced to relocate to an internment camp. We will be discussion this title in our December meeting. Bring tissues.
This Wednesday, we will meet to discuss Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson. All of the copies I ordered are spoken for, so if you can get your hands on one in time for Wednesday’s meeting, come on down!
So for October’s meeting, we will be discussing the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Copies are available at the Park Reference desk, so stop in soon to pick up a copy.
