We'll meet at the library to discuss A House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout.

Growing up in a small town in Canada, Amanda Lindhout dreamed of exploring the world. After travelling from Venezuela to Afghanistan, Lindhout decided to pursue a career as a journalist. During a trip to Somalia, she and her photojournalist companion were kidnapped and held for 15 months by young Somali bandits. Suffering brutal treatment, Lindhout survived by imagining herself in “a house in the sky.” A powerful story of courage, forgiveness, and strength.

Fiction Book Discussion

Thursday, November 13, 2014 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
We'll meet at the library to discuss The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.

Cecilia, married mother of three, stumbles across an envelope from her husband, addressed to her, “to be opened only in the event of my death.” Tess discovers that her husband and her cousin are in love and are really sorry to hurt her, but what can they do? The lives of all three collide when they meet again at the Catholic school they attended as children. This is domestic drama at its best, and includes some laugh-out-loud moments.
