Mary Alice Monroe invites you to meet five remarkable characters as she explores the power of friendship with tenderness, honesty and understanding. On the surface, it is a monthly book club. But for five women, it is so much more. For Eve Porter, whose husband's sudden death cheats her of every security she had planned on, the club is a place of sanctuary. For Annie Blake, a brilliant attorney intent on starting a family late in life, it is the chance to finally let down her guard and dream of other possibilities. For Doris Bridges, it is her support group as she acknowledges her dying marriage and finds the ultimate freedom in her husband's betrayal. For Gabriella Rivera, the "perfect" wife, mother and friend who offers support to everyone but is afraid to ask for it herself, it is a sense of community. And for Midge Kirsch, an artist who has always lived her life against the grain, it is a haven of acceptance. They are five women from different walks of life, embracing the challenge of change. And as they share their hopes and fears and triumphs, they will hold fast to the true magic of the book club—friendship. "Monroe offers up believable characters in a well-crafted story." —Publishers Weekly

At the book club, strange things begin to happen at one of their weekly meetings. Geared with a massive storage facility of secret rooms they find, unchangeable books, and a pen that can put things right and also bring things to life, the group faces daring challenges. From the America that never won its independence, to a world of only old people, to real things like dragons, vampires, and demons coming out of the books into their world, the group faces its “novel” challenges and danger with bravery, daring, sacrifice, and growing friendship throughout it.

Join Bunny for a top-secret trip to the library in a story that celebrates the love of reading. Bunny loves to sit outside the library with the kids and listen to summer story time. But when the weather gets cold and everyone moves inside, his daily dose of joy is gone. Desperate, Bunny refuses to miss out on any more reading time and devises a plan to sneak into the library at night . . . through the library’s book drop! What follows is an adorable caper that brings an inquisitive, fuzzy bunny and his woodland pals up close and personal with the books they have grown to love. A warm celebration of the power of books, Bunny’s Book Club is sure to bring knowing smiles to any child, parent, teacher, bookseller, and librarian who understands the one-of-a-kind magic of reading. "A sweet salute to reading."—Kirkus "Silvestro’s debut picture book is a love letter to the pleasures of reading and libraries, and Mai-Wyss’s colorful illustrations are endearing and comforting . . . A lovely and fun addition for every library."—School Library Journal "[Annie Silvestro] makes the pleasures of reading abundantly clear."—Publishers Weekly "Mai-Wyss’ soft, muted watercolor scenes sprinkled with charming, expressive cuddly animals is the perfect complement to Silvestro’s enchanting story about the love of books."—Booklist
