We Are Called to Rise, the best-seller by Laura McBride will be the topic of discussion at the group’s Monday, March 30 meeting at 7 p.m. in the upstairs Community Room at the library, located at 9 Vernon Street in Middleport.

In McBride’s book, a Barnes and Noble Great Discover New Writer’s selection, three people of different ages and walks of life are drawn together as the result of a split-second mistake. Their lives will never be the same as they grapple with the challenges that they experience as a result. The story, which is in essence about families, focuses on our responsibilities to each other, making it a great choice for discussion at the Monday meeting.

The members chose “We Are Called to Rise” for this month’s meeting because it was chosen for the program A Tale for Three Counties. This program is a one-book, community-reads project for Genesee, Orleans, and Wyoming Counties in Western New York State including some NIOGA member libraries. Book clubs in the participating libraries will all be reading and discussing the same book.

Interested residents and prospective new members are always welcome to attend any of the meetings of the Royalton Hartland Book Club. During the meeting, the members choose the book that they will discuss at the following meeting and a wide variety of genres are always considered.
