The Wednesday Morning Book Group meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 10 AM.    Drop-ins are welcome!

Today we will discuss Nobody's Fool By Russo, Richard  

In his slyly funny and moving novel, the author of The Risk Pool follows the unexpected operation of grace in a deadbeat, upstate New York town--and in the lives of the unluckiest of its citizens. Nobody's Fool was made into a movie starring Paul Newman, Bruce Willis, Jessica Tandy, and Melody Griffin.

Wednesday October 4  ~ Small Great Things by Jodi Piccoult

Wednesday November 1 ~ Love Medicine by Louise Erdich

Wednesday December 6 ~ Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
