Tuesday, April 16 at 6:30 pm: Book Club. 
This month’s title is Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden. From Publisher’s Weekly:
“With a protagonist born into a life of backbreaking labor, cutthroat rivalries, and a nearly complete absence of human affection, Harden’s book reads like a dystopian thriller. But this isn’t fiction—it’s the biography of Shin Dong-hyuk, the only known person born into one of North Korea’s secretive prison labor camps who has managed to escape and now lives in the U.S.”
Copies available on the pickup table in front of the desk in the library.
