November is Book-Into-Movie month for Literary Guild! We are reading Red Sparrow by Jason Matthews, a retired CIA officer with a 30-year career. Red Sparrow has been called “a timely and electrifying thriller that is impossible to put down.” Join us November 21 at 5:30pm for dinner and discussion followed by a viewing of the movie based on the book.
Copies of the book are available at the library desk. New members are welcome!
