For an uplifting start to your new year, attend the HNN book club discussion on Wednesday, January 19 at 7:30pm, over zoom.  Both readers and non-readers will enjoy this month’s story from, “The Day the World Came to Town”, by Jim DeFede. It is the book that inspired the popular Broadway musical production, “Come from Away”. Read the book or catch the show on Apple TV+ and please join us to chat about this inspiring story of friendship and goodwill.

BYO beverage and snacks and join us on zoom! Please let us know you will be coming so we can send you the link. Check out the book club Facebook page or email one of the club co-chairs for details. As always, HNN club members will find titles on reserve at the Holliston library about one month before the meeting. Look in the book club section or ask the librarian for help in finding them.

“The True Story Behind the Events on 9/11 that Inspired Broadway's Smash Hit Musical, Come from Away. When 38 jetliners bound for the United States were forced to land at Gander International Airport in Canada by the closing of U.S. airspace on September 11, the population of this small town on Newfoundland Island swelled from 10,300 to nearly 17,000. The citizens of Gander met the stranded passengers with an overwhelming display of friendship and goodwill. This book recounts the inspiring story of the residents of Gander, Canada, whose acts of kindness have touched the lives of thousands of people and been an example of humanity and goodwill.” ~Description provided by Syndetics
