Sarah Jessica Parker Book Club
Wednesday, June 13th
12 noon
The Western Americana Room
Pick up books at the Front Desk

It's a different kind of book club, based on Book Club Central, a new initiative of the American Library Association that was designed to provide the public with the very best in reading. It’s a quarterly book club in which award-winning actor, producer, and avid reader Sarah Jessica Parker is the honorary chair. Ms. Parker selects books throughout the year to share her joy of reading and discussing good books with readers everywhere. The book club meets four times a year.

The current read is Anatomy of a Miracle by Jonathan Miles, described as a profound new novel about a paralyzed young man’s unexplainable recovery—a stunning exploration of faith, science, mystery, and the meaning of life.

"Jonathan Miles is a great American storyteller, a writer to celebrate with a new novel easily devoured. His tender, life-affirming Anatomy of a Miracle follows paraplegic veteran Cameron Harris and his sister Tanya after Cameron suddenly regains the ability to walk. The story in these pages is astoundingly joyous and deeply humane, and I can’t wait to share it with you all as the new selection for Book Club Central." —Sarah Jessica Parker

Books will be available at the front desk while supplies last. For more information about this book club, contact Judi Boyce at the library, (307) 367-4114 or jboyce@sublettecountylibrary.org.
