This month's book is Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee by Casey Cep. The stunning story of an Alabama serial killer and the true-crime book that Harper Lee worked on obsessively in the years after To Kill a Mockingbird. Now Casey Cep brings this nearly inconceivable story to life, from the shocking murders to the courtroom drama to the racial politics of the Deep South. This book will be available one month prior to the discussion and can be picked up at the Romeoville Branch Library's Adult Services Desk and will be due back one week after the book club date.

Registration is required. Attendees must be 21 years of age or older. To register, click here.
