Canton Readers Offer 2008 Book Recommendations

Looking for a great book recommendation? No one knows better than book club members what’s hot and what’s not. Here is a list of recommendations from the Canton Public Library’s Lunch and a Book discussion group, which meets monthly. Some of the titles are 2008 releases, others are older, but all are great reads. The Canton Public Library sponsors multiple book discussion groups and offers Book-Club- In-A-Bag kits to facilitate at-home discussions. For more information, call 734-397-0999 or visit
