This was sent to me by Luann Rottmann:

You may be struggling through the current book, My Grandmother Told Me to Tell You ….., as I am. On the other hand, you may love it!  At any rate our group will gather on Wed. Nov.29th at 10 am to discuss the book.  We do have A Man Called Ove on reserve and I am hoping the collection can be sent down for sign out even though we are not meeting in December.  We have waited for this title and I hope you will enjoy it in December.

Our January book will be History of Love by Nicole Krauss if it is available.  Below is a little bit about the book from the Amazon website:

 

ONE OF THE MOST LOVED NOVELS OF THE DECADE.


A long-lost book reappears, mysteriously connecting an old man searching for his son and a girl seeking a cure for her widowed mother’s loneliness.

Leo Gursky taps his radiator each evening to let his upstairs neighbor know he’s still alive. But it wasn’t always like this: in the Polish village of his youth, he fell in love and wrote a book…Sixty years later and half a world away, fourteen-year-old Alma, who was named after a character in that book, undertakes an adventure to find her namesake and save her family. With virtuosic skill and soaring imaginative power, Nicole Krauss gradually draws these stories together toward a climax of “extraordinary depth and beauty” (Newsday).

This book sounds wonderful to me and I am looking forward to reading it.   We are always looking for new members so please stop by the library and pick up a book.
