February's Cover-to-Cover Book Club Selection

If you're looking for a great book club discussion group, try our Cover-to-Cover Book Club at your library.  Meeting on the third Thursdays of the month, this group reads everything including bestsellers, fiction, biographies, nonfiction, classics, and more.

For February, the featured selection is Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson and we invite you to look out for a copy at your library and then attend the book club meeting on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 7:00PM.  For more information, be sure to contact Ann Mount at 325-676-6025.

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
Author: Helen Simonson
Summary: Major Ernest Pettigrew, an honor-bound Englishman and widower, and the very embodiment of duty and pride.  As the novel opens, the major is mourning the loss of his younger brother, Bertie, and attempting to get his hands-on Bertie's antique Churchill shotgun - part of a set that the boys' father split between them, but which Bertie's widow doesn't want to hand over.  As he frets over the guns, the major's friendship with Jasmina Ali - the Pakistani widow of the local food shop owner - takes a turn unexpected by the major.  This is a vastly enjoyable traipse through the English countryside and the long-held traditions of the British aristocracy.

Be sure to checkout this title from your Abilene Public Library and come out ready to discuss this title with other avid readers in the community.  Again, the Cover-to-Cover Book Club will meet on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 7:00PM to discuss this title, so be sure to get in on the reading fun.
