The Book Club starts off the New Year with "Grandma Gatewood's Walk" by Ben Montgomery.  This inspiring true story is about Emma Gatewood, a 67-year-old grandmother who declared she was going for a walk and left her small Ohio town with a change of clothes and less than $200.  The next time she was heard from she had walked 800 miles along the Appalachian Trail!  She has been the only woman to walk the entire trail alone, not only once, but three times.

Pick up your copy of the book at our Circulation Desk.  The group will meet for discussion at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 16.
