The Friends of the Library Association will host a Book and Coffee Series on April 20 at the Craigmiles-Johnston House History Branch library at 10 a.m. Due to a schedule conflict, last month’s review did not take place and will be presented this month.
Lynn Dunlap will review Martin Fletcher’s novel, “The List.” This award-winning news correspondent sets his first novel in postwar London. It is a unique perspective of the Holocaust as it tells about those who escaped to Britain just before the outbreak of the war or who survived the camps and are regrouping in London.
Fletcher’s knowledge of 1946 London and Palestine lends well to the telling of the story and his mastery of language is superb.
The May 18 Book and Coffee Series will feature Joel W. Huffstetler, rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Cleveland reviewing Pat Conroy’s “My Reading Life.”
The Book and Coffee Series is open to the public.
