Our November 19 book will be The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor.
In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get.

Our January 21 book will be Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom

rediscovered Morrie in the last months of the older man’s life. Knowing
he was dying of ALS – or motor neuron disease – Mitch visited Morrie in
his study every Tuesday, just as they used to back in college. Their
rekindled relationship turned into one final ‘class’: lessons in how to
live.” – Adapted from goodreads.com.
Our February 18 book will be Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan.
