Nov/Dec Lunchtime Book Discussion at the Derby Public Library

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

Featured book is A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg. This novel is a New York Times bestseller—a Yuletide classic about small-town America and larger-than-life wonders. With the same incomparable style and warm inviting voice that have made her beloved by millions of readers far and wide, author Fannie Flagg has written an enchanting Christmas story of faith and hope for all ages that is sure to become a classic.

Oswald T. Campbell leaves behind the cold and damp weather of the oncoming Chicago winter to spend what he believes will be his last Christmas in the warm and welcoming town of Lost River.

There he meets the postman who delivers mail by boat, the store owner who nurses a broken heart, the ladies of the Mystic Order of the Royal Polka Dots Secret Society, who do clandestine good works. And he meets a little redbird named Jack, who is at the center of this tale of a magical Christmas when something so amazing happened that those who witnessed it have never forgotten it.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulations desk.  Drop-ins are welcome—no registration required.  For further information contact the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.
