April 16, 2015 - "The Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Third Thursday Book Group - 1pm



The Book Group will be participating in the town-wide Spring Read and will discuss The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

The Secret Garden is a timeless classic about two spoiled and sickly children who are transformed by their blossoming friendship and their efforts to care for a mysterious garden. The strong characters and distinctive setting create a charming tale, which has captivated young readers for over 100 years and remains a favorite of adults.

Newcomers are always welcome, and if you don't have your own treasured copy, there are copies to check out at the library.










NON-FICTION Book Group
Wed. April 1 at 1pm and Thursday April 2 at 6:30 pm

Note
: Because this winter's challenges have prevented some folks from getting this book in time, the group will continue the discussion of this title into March.

Our new book group for readers of non-fiction continues with Frozen in Time. You’ll have two choices of meeting times: Wed. April 1 at 1pm and Thursday April 2 at 6:30 pm.

In Nov. 1942 a U.S. cargo plane crashed into the Greenland ice cap, the B-17 sent on the search-and-rescue mission got caught in a storm and also crashed, miraculously all nine men aboard surrived. A second rescue operation was launched, but the plane, the Grumman Duck, flew into a storm and vanished. The survivors of the B-17 spent 148 days fighting to stay alive while waiting for rescue by famed explorer Bernt Balchen. Then in 2012 the U.S. Coast Guard and North South Polar mount an expedition to solve the mystery of the vanished plane and recover the remains of the lost plane's crew.
