Hello Aurora Book Club Members I just wanted to update you on the next book we will be reading for the July 21st Meetup:
The next book we will be reading for our meetup is "Monhegan Windows" by Matthew Kiell. Matthew Kiell is a professional writer, independent publisher and photographer who lives outside of Chicago. He first visited, and fell in love with Monhegan in 1995. We are very lucky to be discussing this book since it is written by a local writer.
Matt will be joining our discussion so you will have a chance to ask any questions you may have regarding the characters, story line, etc. If you would like to get a copy please drop me a note with your address and I will send it to you. You can pay me when we see each other at the Meetup ($17.95) Otherwise you can stop by and pick up a copy. Just let me know what works best.
