Mayor's Book Club a Success! 
Fifty people came to the first lunchtime meeting of the Mayor’s Book Club at the Main Library – and at least a third of them shared their views about Cutting for Stone , a novel by Abraham Verghese, a book they generally liked… especially its vivid picture of life in Ethiopia and a doctor’s world.

Put the next meeting on your calendar Octtober 19 and get ready to imagine life in the middle of a political revolution, from the experience of a child. The next selection is Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, who grew up in Iran. The format is black and white comic strips – a graphic novel.

New titles? 
I think it's great to suggest other titles. It's nice to have some short books for busy people, too.
