Join friends new and old, at our next HNN book club meeting on Wednesday, October 19 at 7:30pm. Once again, we will gather in person, at a member’s home. Let’s meet up, catch up, and discuss this month’s book, The Authenticity Project, by Clare Pooley. Even if you didn’t get a chance to read the book, you’ll still have a great time! Feel free to bring a snack or beverage to share. Registration is required to receive directions so please email Beth at the address below or reply through the Book Club’s Facebook page. Books are in stock for HNN book club members and available to check out from the Holliston Library. See you soon!

"A story about a solitary green notebook that brings together six strangers and leads to unexpected friendship, and even love. "Everybody lies about their lives. What would happen if you shared the truth?" This is the question that Julian Jessop, an eccentric, seventy-nine-year-old artist, poses within a pale green exercise book that he labels The Authenticity Project, before leaving it behind in Monica's Café. When Monica discovers Julian's abandoned notebook, not only does she add her own story to the book, she is determined to find a way to help Julian feel less lonely. And so it goes with the others who find the green notebook that will soon contain their deepest selves. It will also knit the group together In Real Life at Monica's Cafe, where they'll discover the thrill and sometime-risk of being completely honest--and, for some, find unexpected love. With a cast of characters who are by turns quirky and funny, heartbreakingly sad and painfully true-to-life, The Authenticity Project is a novel readers will take to their hearts and read with unabashed pleasure"-- Provided by publisher.

Looking ahead, we continue with a great line up of books including;

  • November -The People We Keep
  • January - The Midnight Library
