Book Club - May 20th

On Saturday, May 20, the Riverton Area Book Club will meet to discuss The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell, by Robert Dugoni, published in 2018. This novel introduces the reader to the condition called ocular albinism, or red eyes, which the character Sam Hill is born with in 1957.

The Riverton Area Book Club will be discussing One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle on Saturday,  April 15, 10-11am, at the Riverton Library.  Published about a year ago, this novel is a love story between a daughter and her mother and as the title suggests, it happens in Italy. Serle's descriptions of Positano on the Amalfi coast make the reader feel that they are right there with the characters. But one character is missing: the mother, Carol Silver.
