Chapter One Book Club @ Pearl

"When Noel learns that his terminally ill former flame is pregnant with his child, he reluctantly agrees to take care of the baby girl. Along with the help of a caring network of friends, family and neighbors—including Lisa, his broken-hearted classmate, and Emily, his American cousin—Noel adapts to his new responsibilities. But when a nosy social worker decides to get involved, she threatens to ruin their unconventional but special arrangement. It will be up to Noel to persuade her that everyone in the neighborhood has something to offer when it comes to minding Frankie."
Join us Thursday, April 12 at the Pearl Library for our Chapter One Book Club where we'll discuss "Minding Frankie" by Irish author Maeve Binchy. Cecelia really likes the book, and you probably will, too. We'll start the discussion at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
