Join us for a discussion of Wishtree by Katherine Applegate

Red is an oak tree who is many rings old. Red is the neighborhood wishtree — people write their wishes on pieces of cloth and tie them to Red's branches.  You might say Red has seen it all.

Drop in on the 3rd Tuesday for this month's book discussion, An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago by Alex Kotlowitz.  

The numbers are staggering: over the past twenty years in Chicago, 14,033 people have been killed and another roughly 60,000 wounded by gunfire. What does that do to the spirit of individuals and community? Drawing on his decades of experience, Alex Kotlowitz set out to chronicle one summer in the city, writing of individuals who have emerged from the violence and whose stories capture the capacity--and the breaking point--of the human heart and soul.

Non-fiction / true crime
