Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
The GPL is pleased to partner with Station 1 Coffeehouse to offer a book club every fall featuring a selection of titles from the Grimsby Author Series. These evening book club meetings will provide readers with a great opportunity to discuss some of the Canadian titles highlighted by the series.
Each meeting will take place at Station 1 Coffeehouse, located at 28 Main Street East in Grimsby. Those interested in participating can register at the Library. 10 copies of each title will be available to be borrowed by book club participants.
Coffee, conversation and books are a great mix, so don’t miss out. Intrigued?
