Book Club News - January 20, 2018

Hi, Readers,The selection for the next book club meeting on January 20, 2018, is Murder on the Orient Express, by Agatha Christie. Most of the members in attendance at the November meeting were not impressed with Lincoln and the Bardo and took issue with its style and content. However, for those reasons we had an animated and rousing discussion! It definitely is an interesting book with its innovative (aggravating?) style and unusual topic.Happy Thanksgiving to all!Pamm
