John Grisham

Spring Branch-Memorial--The Page Turners

Skipping Christmas, John GrishamTitle to be discussed:  Skipping Christmas, by John Grisham.  Date of meeting:  Tuesday, Dec. 10, 6:30pm.  Summary: "Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That's just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they'll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on Hemlock Street without a rooftop Frosty; they won't be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they aren't even going to have a tree. They won't need one, because come December 25 they're setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences--and isn't half as easy as they'd imagined."
