Our Next Book Club Selection is . . .
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman just in time for Halloween! We will meet on Tuesday, October 15th at 7:00 pm at the church to discuss the book.
From the publisher: Nobody Owens, known as “Bod,” is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place—he’s the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians’ time as well as their ghostly teachings—such as the ability to Fade so mere mortals cannot see him. Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead?
