October’s Breakfast by the Book event will meet on Friday, Oct. 16th. There will be a social hour with coffee and goodies at 9:30 AM. The discussion will begin at 10:00 AM. This month’s selection is The Summer before the War by Helen Simonson. According to the reviews this book is “at once haunting and effervescent, The Summer before the War demonstrates the sure hand of a master. Simonson’s characters enchant us, her English countryside beguiles us, and her historical intelligence keeps us at the edge of our seats. This luminous story of a family, a town, and a world in their final moments of innocence is as lingering and lovely as a long summer sunset”.
