Instead of taking our usual summer hiatus, we’re going to keep on reading.  But, we’re going to lighten up and read for pure pleasure.  The Westerlo Public Library’s book discussion group for the month of August’s selection takes us down Tara Road with Maeve Binchy.  Two women, one in Dublin, Ireland, the other in Connecticut, exchange houses for the summer (there’s that summer theme again!) with extraordinary consequences.  At the end of the summer, they finally meet face-to-face and find that they have become, firmly and forever, good friends.  Please join us on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at 7 p.m.  New members are welcomed.
