The Inspirational Book Club will discuss on November 16th at 2:00pm "And the shofar blew" by Francine Rivers. When Paul Hudson accepted the call to pastor the struggling church, he had no idea what to expect. But it didn't take long for Paul to turn Centerville Christian Church around. Attendance was up-way up.Everything was going so well. If only his wife could see it that way. still, he tried not to let her quiet presence disturb him. She knew something wasn't right, and it hadn't been for a long time. Eunice closed the bedroom door quietly and knelt beside her bed. I'm drowning, God. I've never felt so alone. Who can I turn to but you, Lord? Where else does a pastor's wife go for help when her marriage is failing and her life is out of control?

The New Perspective Book Club will discuss on November 17th at 2:00pm "Twelve Angry Librarians" by Miranda James. Lighthearted librarian Charlie Harris is known around his hometown of Athena, Mississippi, for walking his cat, a rescued Maine Coon named Diesel. But he may soon be taken for a walk himself, in handcuffs. Charlie is stressed out. The Southern Academic Libraries Association is holding this year's annual meeting at Athena College. Since Charlie is the interim library director, he must deliver the welcome speech to all the visiting librarians. As if that weren't bad enough, the keynote address will be delivered by Charlie's old nemesis from library school. It's been thirty years since Charlie has seen Gavin Fong, and he's still an insufferable know-it-all capable of getting under everyone's skin. In his keynote, Gavin puts forth a most unpopular opinion: that degreed librarians will be obsolete in the academic libraries of the future. So, when Gavin is found dead, no one seems too upset. But Charlie, who was seen having a heated argument with Gavin after the speech, has jumped to the top of the suspect list. Now Charlie and Diesel must check out every clue to refine their search for the real killer among them, before the next book Charlie reads comes from a prison library.

 The All Fiction Book Club will discuss on November 20th at 2:00pm "The Body In The Library" by Agatha Christie. It's seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. she is wearing an evening dress and heavy makeup, which is now smeared across her cheeks. But who is she? How did she get there? And what is the connection with another deade girl, whose charred remains are later discovered in an abandoned quarry? The respectable Bantry's invite Miss Marple to solve the mystery..before tongues start wag.
