First Fridays Book Discussion In-Person

'First Fridays Book Club' will be held as a hybrid Zoom and offsite at RaMa LuNa Center for Yoga and Well Being at 282 Main Street Ext in Middletown.

December's title is The 13th Gift by Joanne Huist Smith. Copies are available at the Borrowing Desk or by placing a hold at www.russelllibrary.org

After the unexpected death of her husband, Joanne Huist Smith had no idea how she would keep herself together and be strong for her three children--especially with the holiday season approaching. But 12 days before Christmas, presents begin appearing on her doorstep with notes from their "True Friends." As the Smiths came together to solve the mystery of who the gifts were from, they began to thaw out from their grief and come together again as a family. This true story about the power of random acts of kindness will warm the heart, a beautiful reminder of the miracles of Christmas and the gift of family during the holiday season.

We are excited to partner with Rachel Payne and the RaMa Luna Center for Yoga and Well Being, which is located at 282 Main Street Ext in Middletown, on the third floor of the Palmer Eye Care building, next to the Historic Sanseer Mill and CVS.

Facilitated by Christy Billings of Russell Library, Information Services and Adult Learning Department. Questions? (860) 347-2528 Ext 160 or cbillings@russelllibrary.org. Rachel Payne (860) 800-5862 at RaMa Luna, www.ramaluna.com.
