Adult Book Club

library_bookThe Georgetown Peabody Library is pleased to offer an adult book club! The book club will meet on the 2nd Monday of the month and will run until June. We will be discussing The Wonder of All Things by Jason Mott on Mon., February 9 from 7-8 pm.

Here is a summary of the book:

On an ordinary day, at an air show like that in any small town across the country, a plane crashes into a crowd of spectators. After the dust clears, a thirteen-year-old girl named Ava is found huddled beneath a pocket of rubble with her best friend, Wash. He is injured and bleeding, and when Ava places her hands over him, his wounds disappear. Ava has an unusual gift: she can heal others of their physical ailments. Until the air show tragedy, her gift was a secret. Now the whole world knows, and suddenly people from all over the globe begin flocking to her small town.

Copies of the book will be available behind the Main Desk by next week. We will have some available in regular print & large print. If you have any questions, please call the library (978-352-5728).
