Our next book club meeting is on Monday, January 27, at 7:30 p.m.  We'll be discussing The Rubber Band by Rex Stout.  We have one copy here at the library to share.  It is my turn to bring book suggestions and snack.

February's book is Rilla of Ingleside by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Rilla of Ingleside (1921) is the eighth of nine books in the Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, but was the sixth "Anne" novel in publication order. This book draws the focus back onto a single character, Anne and Gilbert's youngest daughter Bertha Marilla "Rilla" Blythe. It has a more serious tone, as it takes place during World War I and the three Blythe boys—Jem, Walter, and Shirley—along with Rilla's sweetheart Ken Ford, and playmates Jerry Meredith and Carl Meredith—end up fighting in Europe with the Canadian Expeditionary Force.Rilla of Ingleside is the only Canadian novel written from a woman's perspective about the First World War by a contemporary.  - from Wikipedia
