6:30 and a Book
Northampton Area Public Library's book discussion group will be meeting on Wednesday, December 18th. The book being discussed is Elbow Room by James Alan McPherson. If you would like to participate in the discussion, please call or stop by the library to get the book.
From the back of the book:
"A beautiful collection of short stories that explores black and whites today, 'Elbow Room' is alive with warmth and humor. Bold and very real, these twelve stories examine a world we all know but find difficult to define.
Whether a story dashes the bravado of young street toughs or pierces through the self-deception of a failed preacher, challenges the audacity of a killer or explodes the jealousy of two lovers, James Alan McPherson has created an array of haunting images and memorable characters in an unsurpassed collection of honest, masterful fiction."
