Book report from the Friends Book Group

Hello Book Group,

Our discussion started with a “Thank you!” to Pam Dunning and the staff of WPL. Wendy commented on the excellent selection of new titles that have been available at the library. I would second that comment. We are very appreciative of the ability to acquire an endless supply of great reading material.

Thank you to Linda B., Lucia , Linda K., Elaine , Sue , and Wendy for presenting books for today’s meeting. The summaries and ensuing discussion were very interesting.
