Join in reading and discussing the book Another Life by Tom McKay, with the author himself!

How long does a high school crush last? One year? Ten? Twenty? Forty? Small-college basketball coach Matt Cooper is about to find out as he is faced with an unexpected reunion with Kim Gustafson, the cutest girl from high school. With warm humor and a light touch, Another Life probes the weighty matters of love, loss, and the passage of time, raising poignant questions about how well we know ourselves or the people we live with, and what we’d do if offered a lost opportunity, all these years later.

Light refreshments will be provided.
