.The Second Tuesday Book Club has moved to the Second THURSDAY Book Club! Same time, with the same great books and the same great people!

Please join us.

This month's discussion book is Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson: "A New York Times Bestseller, A #1 Indie Next Pick -- Welcome to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills and thatched cottages. There Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired) leads a quiet life valuing the things that Englishmen have lived by for generations: honor, duty, decorum, and a properly brewed cup of tea. But then his brother's death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village. Drawn together by their shared love of literature and the loss of their respective spouses, the Major and Mrs. Ali soon find their friendship blossoming into something more. But village society insists on embracing him as the quintessential local and her as the permanent foreigner. Can their relationship survive the risks one takes when pursuing happiness in the face of culture and tradition?"

Book club books are available for pick up at the circulation desk about one month before the discussion date and are due back on the Monday following the Thursday meeting date. This title is also available in audio and ebook format through Overdrive.

All readers are always welcome!
