Brown Bag Book Club will next read...two books!!!!

For October the Brown Bag Book Club will be reading two books!

1) Major Pettigrew’s last stand by Helen Simonson (FIC)
Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired) leads a quiet life in the village of St. Mary, England, until his brother's death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village. Drawn together by their shared love of literature and the loss of their respective spouses, the Major and Mrs. Ali soon find their friendship blossoming into something more. But will their relationship survive in a society that considers Ali a foreigner?
2) On gratitude by Todd Aaron Jensen (179.9) in conjunction with Burbank Reads
Everyone's got something to be thankful for. These stories entertain, but also overflow with quirkiness, sentimentality-and most of all, appreciation. Looking beyond the famous faces, you'll find unexpected insights from esteemed characters that will wake you up to the most valuable things in your own life.

As always, our next meeting is on the third Tuesday of the month, October 18th, at noon at the Central library.

Read a book or two, pack a lunch and see you on the 18th!  Everyone is welcomed to the Brown Bag book club to join us in discussing either or both of the books.
