This month we will be reading Happy Hour by Jacquie Byron which you can access in eBook and eAudio through Libby with your library membership.

We'll be having a 'special guest' attend this month, so make sure you have your questions ready.

All books chosen for Virtual Book Club are available for multiple people to borrow at the same time - which means that you can download and read them anytime.

About the book:

Growing older doesn't necessarily mean growing wiser.

Gin in one hand, paintbrush in the other, Franny Calderwood has turned her back on the world. Having lost her husband, Frank, in tragic circumstances three years earlier, 65-year-old Franny copes the only way she knows how: living a life of decadent seclusion, with only her two dogs, Whisky and Soda, a stuffed cat, cocktails and the memory of Frank for company.

Then the Salernos move in next door. The troubled but charming trio - beleaguered mother Sallyanne, angry teenager Dee and eccentric eight-year-old Josh - cannot help but pull Franny into the drama of their lives. 

A story about one woman, two dogs and the family next door, Happy Hour is a hilarious and uplifting insight into grief, loss, true love and friendship.

Virtual Book Club meets on the third Thursday of each month.
