Every year people all over our area join reading and discussing the same book as part of the Gulf Coast Reads program. Join us on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 10:30 to discuss The Dog Stars by Peter Heller. In this story, a flu pandemic has killed most of the world’s population. Hig, a survivor, lives with his dog Jasper in the local abandoned airport. But then he receives a radio transmission. Are there more people out there? Can he find them? This title has been described as “heart-wrenching and richly written.” Ask our staff about getting a copy and join us for our discussion.
