North Channel Book Club/Gulf Coast Reads

 Extremely Loud and Incredibly CloseFollowing the death of his father in the World Trade Center attacks, 9-year-old Oskar Schell, budding inventor and Francophile, is struggling to come to grips with the loss.  When he finds an envelope containing a key he doesn't recognize, Oskar embarks on a quest around New York to discover what the key unlocks.  Jonathan Safran Foer's "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" takes the reader on the journey with Oskar as he encounters quirky, and sometimes tragic, characters. 

North Channel Book Club

A Dog's Purpose By W. Bruce CameronPet ownership has long been linked to health benefits.  Emotional bonds between people and their pets have been demonstrated time and time again.  In an interesting twist, W. Bruce Cameron's novel, "A Dog's Purpose," does not focus on the human perspective but instead takes the reader on a journey into the mind of the dog, himself (and, later, herself) as Bailey is reborn into new lives and seeks his purpose for living.

The North Channel Book Club will discuss "A Dog's Purpose," on Wednesday, September 26 at 10 am.  Join us in the meeting room for discussion.
