June Book Club Selections

The Seniors Book Club will meet Wednesday, June 10th at 2 pm in the Training Room to discuss Spanish Fly by Will Ferguson.

Raised by his father in the dying town of Paradise Flats, Jack McGreary has learned to live by his wits. The year is 1939. Drought has turned America's heartland into a dust bowl, and the world is on the brink of war. Jack's father wants him to head north to Canada to sign up in the fight against Fascism. But when a pair of fast-talking swindlers named Virgil and Miss Rose blow through town, Jack falls in with them instead. Together, they go on a crime spree across the Southwest, staging a series of inventive and often hilarious cons, while sexual tension between Jack and Miss Rose grows ... Someone is being set up.
