Book Club @ North Adams Library | Seaman | Ohio | United States

Join Julia for the North Adams Library Adult Book Club, which meets on the fourth Thursday of each month. On March 30 at 5:30 p.m. we’ll discuss A Catered St Patrick’s Day by Isis Crawford. Pick up a copy of each month’s book club read at the desk, and ask about hardback, large print, or audio book options. Join us each month for discussion, quizzes, prizes, and refreshments. Even if you can’t attend, you’re welcome to read along, and share your review online. Call Julia at 937-386-2556 for more information.

To most of the people of Longely, New York, St. Paddy’s Day means good food, great music, and plenty of Guinness. But when the lifeless body of Mike Sweeney floats to the top of a vat of green beer, it looks like the luck o’ the Irish has just run out. Unfortunately for the Simmons sisters, Bernie and Libby, the number one suspect is related to one of their very best catering customers, the pampered and powerful Bree Nottingham. When Bree visits A Little Taste of Heaven to beseech them to clear her nephew’s name, they just can’t say no.

But the more information Bernie and Libby stir up, the more Duncan Nottingham looks like a killer. For Bernie and Libby, the situation is deadly and in danger of boiling over. And they can’t count on good old Saint Pat to drive out the snake in their midst. . .they’ll have to do it themselves, before a murderer strikes again.

Catering sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons wade into a Celtic knot of malice and mayhem when a St. Patrick’s Day celebration goes terribly wrong, in this eighth installment of Crawford’s cozy series.

On April 27 at 5:40 p.m., we’ll discuss The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines with Mark Dagostino.

“Are you ready to see your fixer upper?”

These famous words are now synonymous with the dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. As this question fills the airwaves with anticipation, their legions of fans continue to multiply and ask a different series of questions, like–Who are these people?What’s the secret to their success? And is Chip actually that funny in real life? By renovating homes in Waco, Texas, and changing lives in such a winsome and engaging way, Chip and Joanna have become more than just the stars of Fixer Upper, they have become America’s new best friends.

The Magnolia Story is the first book from Chip and Joanna, offering their fans a detailed look at their life together. From the very first renovation project they ever tackled together, to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.
