Bring your lunch and join a new afternoon book discussion group at the library. We'll start off with some popular titles published in the last few years and then try to incorporate some of your choices. 

Please register in advance by email to mgreenblatt@wlsmail.org or call Melinda Greenblatt at 941-7072, ext. 6. Books will be available for loan at the library one month in advance for the first session and then at the meetings for future sessions.

Book Summary:

In a New York City made phantasmagorical by the events of 9/11, Hans - a banker originally from the Netherlands - finds himself marooned among the strange occupants of the Chelsea Hotel after his English wife and son return to London.  Alone and untethered, feeling lost in the country he had come to regard as home, Hans stumbles upon the vibrant New York subculture of cricket, where he revisits his lost childhood and , thanks to Chuck Ramkissoon, begins to reconnect with his life and his adopted country.
