The 3rd Tuesday has just about become my favorite day of the month. It’s the day the Main Street Book Club, hosted by the Azle Memorial Library, meets to discuss our latest pick. We meet in the Community Room from 6:30 pm to about 7:30 pm. On the 20th, we’ll be discussing “Room” by Emma Donoghue. It has been a wildly popular book, one that takes your breath away. I would reserve several hours to read it where you won’t be distracted or need things like food, water, or social interaction. Because you won’t want to look up from those pages! Trust me. And just to warn you, it isn’t a cozy, light book. The beginning is hard to read, and the middle, well, I had to remind myself that everything would be okay, the world wasn’t ending. It’s a really excellent story about a mother’s absolute love for her son, who because of her determination, creativity, and intelligence is able to survive a seemingly impossible situation. So, pencil book club in to your calendars. We have great fun discussing good literature, and we always save a little time at the end for food!
