Thursday, November 12, 7:00 – 9:00 PM: One Day in December
Do you believe in love at first sight? For Laurie, it happened just like in the movies. Their eyes met, and she just knew. And then her bus pulled away… Laurie is so sure that they are meant to be that she spends a year searching for him at bus stops and cafes. A year later they reconnect at a Christmas party – and Jack (the man from the bus) is on the arm of Laurie’s best friend, Sarah. The novel follows ten years of friendship, heartbreak, an examination of roads not taken – and in the end, a heartwarming love story. Join us online for a discussion of One Day in December by Josie Silver. Please contact the library for Zoom meeting details.
