What’s Happening at the Clark County Public Library – Winchester Sun
By John Maruskin
On Monday, July 25 at 11 a.m., Pageturner’s Book Group meets in the Codell Brooks Community Hall to discuss “The Best of Friends,” by Lucinda Berry.
Best friends Lindsey, Kendra and Dani experience every parent’s nightmare when a tragic accident strikes their teenagers, leaving one dead, another in a coma and a third too traumatized to speak. Shocked with horror and grief, the three mothers begin a desperate investigation into the accident. How could something so horrible happen in their wealthy Southern California suburb?
Their investigations lead to disturbing questions: Do they really know their children? Do they know each other? As secrets surface, a fog of doubt and suspicion threatens to poison their families, friendships, and entire community. With illusions of happiness and security gone, Lindsey, Kendra and Dani face heartbreak, jealousy and the dangers of living a double life. Copies of “The Best of Friends” are available at the circulation desk. You will be registered to attend when you pick up a copy.
The library discussion group, Meeting of Minds, meets Tuesday, July 26, at 6 p.m. on the library lawn (unless it rains, then we meet on Zoom). Please bring your own lawn
a chair or blanket for a lawn session. Conversations at the Meeting of Minds range. We are not starting from a defined subject. A subject arises from a first friendly and continuous kibitzing, friends and neighbors

July’s “Would You Rather” background survey from Reference Librarian, Jennifer Matter, is: “Would you rather be a wizard or a superhero?” or “Would you rather be able to stop time or go back in time?” At the moment, wizards are winning and we prefer to stop time rather than go back in time.
