Non-Fiction Book Club : FURIOUS HOURS by Casey Cep

Join Jenny  in Zoom for a lively discussion group on non-fiction titles.

This “superbly written true-crime story” (Michael Lewis, The New York Times Book Review) masterfully brings together the tales of a serial killer in 1970s Alabama and of Harper Lee, the beloved author of To Kill a Mockingbird, who tried to write his story.

Meeting information, including a direct link to the meeting, will be sent in your confirmation email, and again in a reminder email to be sent the day before the meeting. For more information please email Jenny Hoff, Librarian at jhoff@minlib.net
