Gibson's Book Club reads Love, Anthony, by Lisa Genova

Monday, March 2, at 7 PM

To deepen our understanding of the issues underlying this novel, we're encouraging everyone also to read Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and What Color is Monday in preparation for this meeting.

Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.
