The book choice for March is A Gentleman In Moscow by Amor Towles, the One Book, One County 2018 selection. The author will be a guest at two events in the area in April! More information can be found on Montco Public Libraries' website here. There is a wait list for the book, but if you are interested in attending the March meeting we should be able to get a copy for you. We will also be raffling off a copy of Towles' book Rules of Civility. Stop in the library, call us at (215) 679-2020, or email us at Please direct your request to Laura.

In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s doors. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

Brimming with humor, a glittering cast of characters, and one beautifully rendered scene after another, this singular novel casts a spell as it relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose.

April's selection is Longwood Gardens' Community Read for 2018: Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. We will have a raffle for tickets to Longwood, each of which is good for free admission for up to four people. The author will be speaking at Longwood on March 24th from 7-9pm. More information can be found on Longwood Gardens' website here.
