august bean therePick up a copy of Dream House by Valerie Laken for the Tuesday August 25, 2015 7-8:30PM Bean There, Read That book club at The Classic Bean (21st and Fairlawn) for folks in their 20s and 30s!

What price will people pay to hold their homes and dreams together? When Kate and Stuart Kinzler buy a run-down historic house in Ann Arbor, Michigan, they’re hoping their grand renovation project can rescue their troubled marriage. Instead, they discover that years ago their home was the scene of a terrible crime–and the revelation tips the balance of their precarious union. When a mysterious man begins lurking around her yard, Kate, now alone, is forced to confront her home’s dangerous past. Hers is not the only life that has crumbled under this roof. This man’s family also disintegrated here, as the result of one brief act of rage that may haunt him–and this house–for years to come.

If you are interested in reading this, you can pick up a copy at the previous month’s meeting or at the Reference Desk, first-come, first serve.

As always, plan to bring cash for drinks and food as we gather for this discussion.
