Join us on the patio for a spooky seasonal read! We'll be reading "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman to get us in the Halloween spirit, but don't worry, this book won't keep you at night. Place your copy on hold for pick-up or home delivery, or find it available on Overdrive in E-book or E-audiobook format.
Safety precautions for COVID-19 will be in place. We will be outside on the patio in the fresh air, so please dress for the weather. Participation is limited to 7 at each discussion session. Masks will be required.
"The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman:
A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn’t thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she’d claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse where she once lived, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.
