North Branch Book Group: Peaches for Father Francis


Thursday, September 25, 7 pm, North Branch 

Vianne Rocher, the heroine of the Chocolat series by Joanne Harris, returns to Lansquenet after being summoned by a letter from the dead. Father Francis is being accused of burning down the old chocolate shop which has been converted into a school for Muslim girls. Although this is the third in the Chocolat series, it stands well as a read alone. Join us for a discussion of this year's Suburban Mosaic adult selection.   

Copies of Peaches for Father Francis are available at the North Branch for those who will be attending the discussion. Please register for an email reminder.
