HLAA-SLC Book Club Social

Our Chapter is trying something new! We are going to start having socials between our regular meetings. We’d like to invite you to our first one on February 22, 2014 from 2-4pm. It will be held at the Sanderson Center in classroom B/C with CART and the hearing loop available.

We starting off with a book club led by Helen Droitsch. The book to be reviewed is “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” by Jonathon Safron Foer. It’s about a nine year old boy named Oskar Schell who finds a key in a vase that belonged to his father who died in the 9/11 attack. Oskar searches New York for information about the key. This 2005 novel spent several weeks on the bestseller list winning several awards and honors. It was made into a movie in 2012.

Join us with a discussion of this book. Refreshments will be served. There’s nothing like hot chocolate on a winter day with a good book in good company. We hope to see you there.

Try to check it out now from your local library.  Yesterday I saw three copies available at the Millcreek county library.  If yours doesn’t have it, request they get it in from another.
