"You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend." - Paul Sweeney
The Campus Community Book Club is taking a break from the heavy books we’ve read lately and will read The Secret of Snow by Viola Shipman, aka Wade Rouse, as our December read. This book may be a challenge to obtain so look for it early.
Please join us for a discussion of this heartwarming holiday novel via Zoom on Wednesday, December 8th at 12 pm. Please RSVP to this notice or email email@example.com for the meeting link.
About the Book:
The forecast is calling for a reluctant homecoming and regrettable decisions with a strong chance of romance…
When Sonny Dunes, a SoCal meteorologist whose job is all sunshine and seventy-two-degree days, is replaced by a virtual meteorologist that will never age, gain weight or renegotiate its contract, the only station willing to give the fifty-year-old another shot is the very place Sonny’s been avoiding since the day she left for college - her northern Michigan hometown.
Sonny grudgingly returns to the long, cold, snowy winters of her childhood…with the added humiliation of moving back in with her mother. Not quite an outsider but no longer a local, Sonny finds her past blindsiding her everywhere: from the high school friends she ghosted, to the former journalism classmate and mortal frenemy who’s now her boss, to, most keenly, the death years ago of her younger sister, who loved the snow.
To distract herself from the memories she's spent her life trying to outrun, Sonny throws herself headfirst into covering every small-town winter event to woo a new audience, made more bearable by a handsome widower with optimism to spare. But with someone trying to undermine her efforts to rebuild her career, Sonny must make peace with who she used to be and allow her heart to thaw if she’s ever going to find a place she can truly call home.#
We look forward to seeing you! We will also be discussing our reading list for 2022.
