Lila by Marilynne Robinson, is the December Book Club selection. Lila, homeless and alone after years of roaming the countryside, steps inside a small-town Iowa church, the only available shelter from the rain, and ignites a romance and a debate that will reshape her life. Register at the library, check out a book, finish the book by the meeting date, and join this group on Monday, December 19, at 1 PM for the discussion.
