We had a great book club discussion for Heaven is for Real on November 4, 2011. The compare /contrast discussion with The Five People You Meet in Heaven ended with the group favoring the happier attitude about heaven in this selection. They especially liked the idea that you could meet family members, you had never met on earth. The idea of angels with swords was also enlightening.
Our new book club selection is If I Stay by Gayle Forman. This is a coming of age story. Mia has everything, with a life full of choices. Then, in an instant, almost all of that is taken from her. Caught between life and death, a happy past and an unknowable future, Mia spends one incredibly, critical day contemplating the only decision she has left : the most important she’ll ever make. Simultaneously tragic and hopeful, this is a romantic, riveting, and ultimately uplifting story about memory, music, living, dying, and loving. Guys and gals will enjoy and relate to this book.
Next Book Club is Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at 7:30 AM in the Library.
