Booked for the Evening

Thursday, October 5 at 6:30 PM
No registration required

We will be discussing “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins: “Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning, flashing past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stopping at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. Their life, as she sees it, is perfect…until she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but now everything is changed. Rachel goes to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?”  You are welcome to join us even if you haven’t yet read the book.
