The Riverton Area Book Club will be discussing One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle on Saturday, April 15, 10-11am, at the Riverton Library. Published about a year ago, this novel is a love story between a daughter and her mother and as the title suggests, it happens in Italy. Serle's descriptions of Positano on the Amalfi coast make the reader feel that they are right there with the characters. But one character is missing: the mother, Carol Silver. Her daughter, Katy, is almost paralyzed with grief but a transformative experience allows her to regain her footing in life. Paramount Pictures has recently bought the film rights for this story.
May's book selection is The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell, by Robert Dugoni. This is an inspirational story of a young man overcoming the obstacles of having a condition called ocular albinism, or red [pupils in his eyes.
The public is welcome to attend meetings; books/audio are available through the Library. For more information please call the Library staff at 217-629-6353 during normal business hours.
