With our new President, many people are interested in the immigration policies of the United States Of America. In our book and author selection for February, Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran, this issue becomes personal. Publishers Weekly describes the book this way: "Humanizes the issue of illegal immigration...readers will be emotionally invested". Having read the book, I can say this is an understatement. Please join us for an "in conversation" with Donna Apidone and Shanthi Sekaran, Tuesday, February 7 at 6pm in our Community Room. They will discuss this amazing and compassionate novel of love for one very Lucky Boy. Get your tickets now.

We started our year out with another rollicking party, this one featuring Andrew Grant. We hope you enjoyed it, because we have one more author event, before we head back to Face To Face Book Club meetings in March. February will have us featuring Shanthi Sekaran in conversation with Donna Apidone. Sekaran, whose previous book The Prayer Room was a feature of The Bee Book Club and a big event at the old Borders store on Fair Oaks, has a new book called Lucky Boy. I will tell you that I read a draft of this book many months ago and immediately contacted the publisher asking for an opportunity to host Ms. Sekaran as soon as the book was released. I got my wish, and Shanthi Sekaran will be with us, Tuesday, February 7 at 6pm in our Community Room. Join us then, and learn how this thoughtful and thought provoking book about immigration, fertility, tradition and parenting came to be written.
