ADULT BOOK CLUB

The book for November is The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. From Goodreads:

A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing’s will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger—and a possible murderer—to inherit his vast fortune, one thing’s for sure: Sam Westing may be dead… but that won’t stop him from playing one last game!”

Meet on Thursday November 18th at 6:30pm in the front foyer of the library. At the end of book club, you will meet with Books for Boys and Mother Daughter Book Clubs for some fun activities.

Pick up your book club copy at the Front Circulation Desk. While supplies last.
