    Join us every third Tuesday for some lively book discussions and tips on what’s hot and what’s not in the world of books.

    This month's topic of discussion is Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue.

    Summary: Call it a recession novel, or an immigrant tale -- both are true. In 2007, Manhattan-based Cameroonian immigrant Jende Jonga gets a job chauffeuring for Lehman Brothers executive Clark Edwards, easing the financial strain on his family.

    Find out more about this book, find similar books, read reviews and more at Novelist.

    Book Club - A Page in Time
    6:30 PM

    Enjoy Historical fiction? Please come to our book club, A Page in Time.

    This month's topic of discussion is Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor.

    Summary: August 1914. England is at war. As Evie Elliott watches her brother, Will, and his best friend, Thomas Harding, depart for the front, she believes—as everyone does—that it will be over by Christmas, when the trio plan to celebrate the holiday among the romantic cafes of Paris. But as history tells us, it all happened so differently.
