Tuesday, December 18, 2018 - 6:30pm

Join us for a discussion of the novel Christmas Bells by Jennifer Chiaverini.  From kirkusreviews.com: "Preparing for Christmas in Cambridge, Massachusetts, church members face challenges aided by faith and friends and inspired by the eponymous poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow—who, in an alternate storyline, fights despair as he confronts personal tragedy and the Civil War . . . A gentle exploration of tragedy, hope, the power of Christmas, and the possibility of miracles." Please either have read the book or listened to the audiobook before the meeting. Register by contacting the library at (717) 732-4274.
