The Alafaya Book Club's January selection is "Silver Lining's Playbook" by Matthew Quick. Pat Peoples has a theory: if he becomes physically fit and emotionally literate, he will receive a happy ending. The problem is, Pat has an estranged wife, his beloved Philadelphia Eagles keep losing, he's being pursued by the deeply odd Tiffany, and his new therapist doesn't have the best advice.
Join the Southwest Book Club this month to discuss The Cooked Seed: A Memoir by Anchee Min. Author of the internationally bestselling memoir Red Azalea, Min now traces her journey from the painful deprivations of her homeland to the sudden bounty of the United States, where she endured five jobs, crime, and a painful marriage before the birth of a daughter inspired her writing career.
Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend. The book club meets monthly at the Southwest Branch Library. No registration needed. For more information, please call 407.835.7323 or email email@example.com.
