The title for November's meeting will be As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner. In 1918, Philadelphia was a city teeming with promise. Even as its young men went off to fight in the Great War, there were opportunities for a fresh start on its cobblestone streets. Into this bustling town came Pauline Bright and her husband, filled with hope that they could now give their three daughters a chance at a better life. Their dreams are short-lived, however, as just months after they arrive, the Spanish Flu reaches the shores of America. As the pandemic claims more than twelve thousand victims in their adopted city, they find their lives left with a world that looks nothing like the one they knew. 

Copies of the title will be available at the Customer Service desk in advance of the meeting, while supplies last. Call the library at 926-3317 for more information.
