Senior Center Book Club

LongMileHomeOur next book title hits close to home–The Long Mile Home, to be specific. Written by two Boston Globe reporters, Scott Helman and Jenna Russell, this book looks at the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013, and the tense manhunt that left Boston in lockdown for several days afterward. Copies may be checked out from the library, but the group meets at the Norwood Senior Center. Hope to see you there!
