We are in the midst of our annual One Book One Valley season. I just finished The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood and I have to say that it’s just about as perfect as a novel can get. It can be read on several levels. The prose is beautiful. It’s tender and moving, but also thoughtful. I don’t remember the last time I liked a book so much.
Our book group will be discussing in next week and I know several other book groups are reading it too. We have only 10 paperback copies and one eBook copy. There is a lengthy list of people who are waiting for a chance, please, return yours by your due date in order to give someone else a chance. I know that you like to keep your copy for the discussion, but please try and make do without that this time. The whole point of One Book, One Valley is to be able to chat with your neighbors and it only works if we all read it!
As always, everyone is welcome at our book discussion on Tuesday, October 10th. We meet upstairs in the cozy chairs. I also hope to see lots of Jacksonians at the author event at Kennett High School on Thursday, October 26th at 7pm. If you want to make an evening of it, Black Cap Grille is donating 10% of dinners sold that evening to One Book One Valley.
I would also like to thank The Lodge at Jackson Village for providing our author with overnight accommodations again this year. Always generous and so appreciated!
