Thursday Night Book Group

This long-standing book club has been at the store about as long as I have! We meet the fourth Thursday of every month except November and December, when we have a combined month holiday party. We read great books and have a lot of fun.

One in a Million Boy by Monica Wood
Thursday, October 26, 7 p.m. at Kennett High School

One in a Million Boy by Monica WoodWe are pleased to announce that this year’s book for One Book One Valley will be One in a Million Boy by Monica Wood.

The story of your life never starts at the beginning. Don't they teach you anything at school?

So says 104-year-old Ona to the 11-year-old boy who's been sent to help her out every Saturday morning. As he refills the bird feeders and tidies the garden shed, Ona tells him about her long life, from first love to second chances. Soon she's confessing secrets she has kept hidden for decades.

One Saturday, the boy doesn't show up. Ona starts to think he's not so special after all, but then his father arrives on her doorstep, determined to finish his son's good deed. The boy's mother is not so far behind. Ona is set to discover that the world can surprise us at any age, and that sometimes sharing a loss is the only way to find ourselves again.

We will be reading and discussing this book for our October Mystery Book Group and encourage anyone in our Thursday Night Book Group to join us at the bookstore on October 12 for our discussion. We will all meet at Kennett High School on Thursday, October 26 at 7pm to hear author Monica Wood speak and answer questions, followed by a book signing. We hope you can attend.

We will also have our annual Favorite Book Swap. Bring a book you love (no faking!), wrapped, and we will do a Yankee Swap.
