Correction in Book Report
There were several errors in the book discussion section on page six of the March/April 2015 Book Report. We especially regret misattributing Death of a Spymaster. Be assured that this novel is indeed by La Grange author Russell R. Miller.
The correct listings are as follow:
Beyond Borders Reading Group - April 14, Death of a Spymaster by Russ Miller
Noir in a Bar - March 31, Care and Feeding of Exotic Pets by Diana Wagman
Adult Book Discussions - April 9, The Children Act by Ian McEwan
A corrected version of The Book Report and all previous Book Reports can always be found here.
