Spalding Public Library’s book club members are reading this beguiling debut novel this month, by author Rachel Joyce.

 Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning a letter arrives, addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl, from a woman he hasn’t heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. But before Harold mails off a quick reply, a chance encounter convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person. In his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold Fry embarks on an urgent quest. Determined to walk six hundred miles to the hospice, Harold believes that as long as he walks, Queenie will live. A novel of charm, humor, and profound insight into the thoughts and feelings we all bury deep within our hearts, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry introduces Rachel Joyce as a wise—and utterly irresistible—storyteller.

Please join us tomorrow (Thursday) morning at 10 a.m. as we read about BUGS!! Story hour will differ from years past slightly as activities are planned for each week, but they may not always be crafts. We will read a few books about the theme, each child will be strongly encouraged to check out a few books for the week, and we will wrap up with an activity that goes along with the theme. Sandy Miller is working hard to have an older and younger activity for each week, but her target ages will be 3-8. Please have an older helper attend with your child/children! Please comment so that we know how many kids to plan the activities for this week!
