Join booksellers Andi and Sierra on Wednesday, January 24 at 7:30pm for the next meeting of our Adult Fiction Book Club!
This onth, we will be discussing The Secret Book of Flora Lea by Patti Callahan Henry. When a woman discovers a rare book that has connections to her past, long-held secrets about her missing sister and their childhood spent in the English countryside during World War II are revealed. A refreshingly original novel about the bond between sisters, the complications of conflicted love, and the enduring magic of storytelling, this will be a great book to discuss, with snacks and beverages.
It’s the next meeting of our middle grade book club for ages 9+! Led by bookseller extraordinaire Lorilee, we hope to introduce interested readers to amazing new books and the opportunity to talk about them in a fun, relaxed group setting. Even if you didn't like or finish the book, come to the meeting–different opinions make for great discussions!
