Brendan: LOOK FOR BRENDAN KIRBY ATHLEISURE HITTING STORES SOME TIME SOON. Michaela: EACH SEASON, WE’VE BEEN ENJOYING SOME GREAT READS IN OUR BOOK CLUB AND HERE NOW TO SHARE THE FALL BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS IS JENNIFER MASOTTI. WELCOME BACK. THANK YOU. Michaela: WE KNOW IT’S FALL. MAYBE SOME PEOPLE ARE THINKING IT’S TOO LATE IN THE YEAR TO JOIN THE BOOK CLUB? IS THERE STILL TIME? ABSOLUTELY. IT IS AN ONLINE BOOK CLUB AND WE DESIGNED THINK WAY. FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN’T COMMIT TO ACTUALLY GOING TO AN ON-SITE BOOK CLUB OR MAYBE A LITTLE BIT TIMID ABOUT OFFERING HONEST FEEDBACK ABOUT THE BOOK DISCUSSION, IT IS A PERFECT VENUE TO DO THAT SO THEY CAN GO ON TO OUR Facebook PAGE AND JOIN THE DISCUSSION. WE POST QUESTIONS, THOUGHTS, POLLS EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE. WE’LL LAUNCH THIS ONE TODAY AND BE DISCUSSING IT ON DECEMBER 6 SO YOU HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO READ IT. NO PRESSURE. A GREAT WAY TO GET INVOLVED WITHOUT COMMITING TO GOING INTO A MEETING. Michaela: AND I LIKE, TOO, LIKE YOU SAID, YOU ARE GIVING PEOPLE ENOUGH TIME TO READ IT. ESPECIALLY DURING THIS TIME OF YEAR. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE HOLIDAYS AND PARTIES AND GET TOGETHERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. YOU DON’T WANT TO FEEL A TIME CRUNCH. YOU WANT TO ENJOY IT. TAKE YOUR TIME. EXACT LI. Michaela: WHAT IS THE BOOK HERE? THIS IS “WONDER” BY EMMA DONAHUE. SHE IS THE AUTHOR OF THE NATIONAL BEST SELLER “ROOM” WHICH BECAME A MOVIE THAT WE ALL READ AND LOVED. SO WHAT WE WERE LOOKING TO DO THIS TIME IS, IT’S FALL. I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I WANT TO HIEBLER NATE AND CURL UP WITH A BLANKET AND READ SOMETHING — COMPULSIVELY READ SOMETHING STIMULATING. WE WANTED TO PICK SOMETHING THAT WAS MAYBE A LITTLE BIT OF A THRILLER. SO, MOST PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE THIS. BUT EMMA DONAHUE’S ROOTS ARE IN HISTORICAL FICTION. SO, THIS BOOK IS A COMBINATION OF HISTORICAL FICTION AND CONTEMPORARY THRILLER. IT IS A STORY OF FAITH, TRUTH, REDEMPTIVE LOVE STORY. Michaela: AND THE LENGTH OF IT IS HANDLABLE. MAYBE 300 PAGES? AROUND THERE. THAT IS PERFECT LENGTH FOR THAT. NOW THIS IS GREAT FOR READERS OF KIND OF ANY AGE, I MEAN HOW YOUNG WOULD YOU START WITH A BOOK LIKE THIS? IT IS ADULT FICTION. I HAVE READ HALF OF IT. IT ABSOLUTELY CROSSES OVER. SO, IF YOU HAVE A YOUNG ADULT, OLDER TEENAGER CAN READ ALONG AS WELL. BUT WE HAVE OTHER BOOK SELECTIONS IN THE STORE. SOMEONE LOOKING AT FALL READS FOR THEIR KIDS, WE’RE HAPPY TO HELP. Michaela: YOU MENTIONED THERE ARE TWO LOCATIONS. YES. OUR ORIGINAL LOCATION IN BARRINGTON IS CELEBRATING 30 YEARS AND GARDEN CITY CENTER JUST CELEBRATED ONE YEAR LAST WEEK. Michaela: AND A LOT OF GREAT GIFT ITEMS IN THERE, TOO. BOOKS, TOYS AND GIFTS. Michaela: IF YOU WANT TO GET TO READING, YOU CAN. DON’T FORGET TO JOIN THE BOOK
