Announcement for Barker Library Book Club Members

The Barker Library Book Club's next selection will be In the Blink of an Eye by Dunkirk native and New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Wendy Corsi Staub.

An Unusual Town...Lily Dale, New York, is no ordinary town. A sleepy summer resort village, it is home to a population of psychics, and the place where Julia Garrity and Kristin Shuttleworth formed a fast friendship that would only be broken...by death. Ten Summer Street is no ordinary house. It was in the huge Victorian that Kristin saw something fifteen years ago on Halloween night. Something that would haunt her for the rest of her days.

We will be discussing this title at our next meeting on Saturday, January 15, 2011, 2-4pm. See you there!
If you are not a member of the Barker Library Book Club and would like to join, please feel free to send us an e-mail anytime at barker@netsync.net.
