Popular Fiction Book Discussion

Join us for an evening of spirited conversation.  This month's title is The High Tide Club by Mary Kay Andrews.  This book is deceptive; it appears to be a simple beach read, but it also includes layers of mystery, intrigue, and racial tensions.   Registration is not required for this program, and all are welcome to join the discussion, facilitated by Library Director Deb Grimmett.
