A Novel Idea: JUNE BOOK REVEAL! @High Meadows Branch Library

june book clubWe are happy to reveal that our June Book Club selection is Shari Lapeña’s The Couple Next Door.

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all-a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. One hot summer night they are invited to a dinner party next door, and a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents, but the truth is a much more complicated story. Inside the Conti's house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets they’ve kept for years. What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family-a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness.

Orphan Train Book Discussion

Join us 7pm Monday when our Evening Book Club will discuss the Orphan Train by Christina Kline.  This 2013 bestseller features a teenager struggling with living in foster care who reluctantly befriends an elderly woman who teaches her much about life, especially through her own experiences as a member of the Orphan Train.  The Orphan Trains were an attempt to send children out from New York to the supposedly healthier life in the Midwest, from the 1850's to 1929. This is a moving story of resilience and empathy.  There’s still plenty of time to pick up a copy of The Orphan Train from our customer service desk and join the discussion in the meeting room this coming Monday, February 6th.
