MPL Book Club - October 15

You are invited to join the Morton Library book club on Thursday, October 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Hauter Conference Room to discuss the book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

“Childhood memories are sometimes covered and obscured beneath the things that come later, like childhood toys forgotten at the bottom of a crammed adult closet,” Neil Gaiman writes in this slim, dark dream of a novel, “But they are never lost for good.” Who we used to be sometimes seems like a faint shadow of who we are now, but Gaiman helps us remember the wonder and terror and powerlessness that owned us as children. (New York Times Sunday Book Review).

We hope you'll join us for our discussion and refreshments!
