Our next general interest book club pick is My Sister the Serial Killer! It's about a young woman who has a bad habit of killing her boyfriends. And what's a girl to do but help her sister out? Sometimes with bleach and rubber gloves.
Pick up your copy for 10% off all month long. The group will meet to discuss on Sunday, January 13th at 1pm.

It's #givingtuesday!
Have you checked out our #blinddatewithabook display? Your suggested contribution of $5 per gift-wrapped galley goes to charity. Right now donations go to @immfamtogether, an Astoria-founded organization that contributes to bond funds for women detained at the border and helps support them as they are reunited with their children.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us support Immigrant Families Together and all the other organizations we've been able to contribute to since we put up this display.
