This month we will be discussing The Wonder by Emma Donoghue.

"Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who is said to be living without food, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl. As Anna's life ebbs away, Lib finds herself responsible not just for the care of a child but for that child's very survival. Haunting and magnetic, The Wonder is a searing examination of doubt, faith, and what nourishes us, body and soul. Written with all the propulsive tension that made Donoghue's Room a huge bestseller, it works beautifully on many levels -- an intimate tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a spellbinding story of love pitted against evil." -- from back cover.

No Registration is necessary and new members are always welcome! Copies of the book will be available a month before our meeting at the circulation desk.

Our book this month will be The Switch by Joseph Finder. The author will be joining our discussion, by telephone, so get your questions ready!

 "A simple mix up throws one innocent man into the crosshairs of sinister government secrets and ruthless political ambitions"-- Michael Tanner is on his way home from a business trip when he accidentally picks up the wrong MacBook in an airport security line. Home in Boston, he discovers that the owner is a US senator and that the laptop contains top secret files. When Senator Susan Robbins realizes she's come back with the wrong laptop, she calls her young chief of staff, Will Abbott, in a panic. Both know that the senator broke the law by uploading classified documents onto her personal computer. Abbott turns to a "fixer" to retrieve the laptop before a bigger security breach is revealed.

No Registration is necessary and new members are always welcome! Copies of the book will be available a month before our meeting at the circulation desk.
