We will be discussing "The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry." A.J. Fikry's life is not at all what he expected it to be. He lives alone, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. But when a mysterious package appears at the bookstore, its unexpected arrival gives Fikry the chance to make his life over and see everything anew. Please speak with a librarian for information on obtaining a copy of the book

 

Evening Book Club (Meets every other month at 7:00pm)
Next Meeting is Monday, April 9 at 7:00pm in the Ayers Room-Lower Level
We will be discussing "Dry" by Augusten Burroughs. You may not know it, but you've met Augusten Burroughs. You've seen him on the street, at restaurants, on the subway: a twenty-something guy, nice suit, works in advertising.  Ordinary. But when the ordinary person had two drinks, Augusten had twelve; when the ordinary person went home at midnight, Augusten never went home at all. When Augusten lands in rehab, he is forced to examine himself and realizes when his thirty days are up, he will have to return to his Manhattan life and live it sober. What follows is a memoir that's as moving as it is funny, as heartbreaking as it is real. Please speak with a librarian for information on obtaining a copy of the book.
