The Popular Book Club will take place at the Morris Community Room with the Morris Public Library on Tuesday, September 29, at 7 pm.

The group will discuss “The Great Alone” by Kristin Hannah.
Alaska, 1974. Ernt Allbright came home from the Vietnam War a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes the impulsive decision to move his wife and daughter north where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier.
Cora will do anything for the man she loves, even if means following him into the unknown. Thirteen-year-old Leni, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, has little choice but to go along, daring to hope this new land promises her family a better future.
In a wild, remote corner of Alaska, the Allbrights find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the
locals make up for the newcomers’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources.
We will observe state recommended COVID guidelines – face covering and social distancing.
