Thank You Justin Kramon………

for meeting with us to discuss your new thriller, The Preservationist.

We thoroughly enjoyed the book, even if it was, as one of our members described it “a mother’s worst nightmare!” The Preservationist is a real page turner and will keep you guessing until the very end.  Justin’s first book Finny, is a delightful yet quirky coming of age story. Two very different books, one very talented and yes, charming author! Both Finny and The Preservationist are perfect for book clubs and if you ask Justin to join your book club, he may just say yes!

Yes she was on The View! You can watch even if you have not finished the book. THERE ARE NO SPOILERS! This book is going to make one good movie. It looks like Reese Witherspoon will be playing Amy. Who would you like to see play Nick?

And she is only 22 years old! Veronica grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. She studied creative writing at Northwestern University, and wrote Divergent while she was supposed to be doing her school work. In her case…. it paid off!

Meet Kristin Hannah,The Author Of This Month’s Book Night Road

I just started reading Night Road and it is all coming back to me. Those  high school days, when my kids had just gotten their drivers licenses. Staying up late at night, waiting until the beep, beep of the door signaling me that they were home and I could go to sleep!  No more worries!

I have to admit that I have an uneasy feeling reading this book. I know that something bad is going to happen… I just don’t know what. Join us in reading Night Road.
