The Book Club will meet on Tuesday, March 20, at 7 p.m. at the library to discuss Memory Man by David Baldacci. This book was originally scheduled to be discussed in April, but we’ve switched March and April’s books to accommodate some of our members. Memory Man is a great read. As soon as I finished it, I had to read the two sequels.
