It is up to you if you want to have a copy of the book with you. Sometimes people like to look back at something that we are talking about, but we should have plenty of copies. =)

The Book Club watched the movie, Speak, on Tuesday at the Library. Many differences between the book and the movie were discussed. The group rated the movie 3 1/2 stars. If you have not seen it, come check-out the DVD from MGPL's DVD collection. Reminder! There is no fee for Morton Grove card holders. DVD rentals are free!
