McAuliffe Evening Book Club: Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam

Amanda and Clay head out to a remote corner of Long Island expecting a vacation but a late-night knock on the door breaks the spell. The owners of the vacation house arrived in a panic. They bring the news that a sudden blackout has swept the city. But in this rural area—with the TV and internet now down, and no cell phone service—it’s hard to know what to believe. Should Amanda and Clay trust this couple—and vice versa? Is the vacation home, isolated from civilization, a truly safe place for their families?

Hybrid: In-Person/Zoom. Register at: http://bit.ly/FPL-Events. March 8th’s title is TBD. Led by Brigitte Griffin.

Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices . . . Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets? A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived.
