A message on my home answering machine alerted me that the book I had ordered had arrived. The call was just in time because even though I had forgotten the title of the book, I knew the Pollard Memorial Library book club meeting was next week (Thursday, September 1 at 630 pm in the library’s ground floor community room – open to all). After work today, I dropped in to the circulation desk and asked for my book. The clerk returned with it, saying “this is timely.” The book? “Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938” by R.A. Scotti. So I’m off to read about what might be in store for us this weekend.
