Book Club selection of the month

"Miss Buncle's Book"

By D.E. Stevenson

If you love to read - Book Club is the right fit for you. New readers are always welcome!

Thursday, December 17th @ 11:30 a.m.

Barbara Bunde is in a bind. Times are harsh, and Barbara's bank account has seen better days. Maybe she could sell a novel ... if she knew any stories. Stumped for ideas, Barbara draws inspiration from her fellow residents of Silverstream, the little English village she knows inside and out. It's a good thing she wrote under a pseudonym, because the folks of Silverstream are in an uproar. What really turns Miss Bunde's world around is this: What happens to the characters in her book starts happening to their real-life counterparts.
