Adult Book Discussion How to Walk Away

Monday, April 8, 2019 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm
This month's Adult Book Discussion book will be How to Walk Away by Katherine Center.

Margaret Jacobsen is just about to step into the bright future she's worked for so hard and so long: a new dream job, a fiancé she adores, and the promise of a picture-perfect life just around the corner. Then, suddenly, on what should have been one of the happiest days of her life, everything she worked for is taken away in a brief, tumultuous moment.

Copies of the book are available at the Library Services Desk one month before our meeting. Join us for a lively discussion.
