1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Other Off-Site
Heartland Senior Services Center
Join Library staff at Heartland Senior Services for a discussion of The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. At the heart of The Husband’s Secret is a letter that’s not meant to be read. Cecilia Fitzpatrick has achieved it all-she’s an incredibly successful businesswoman, a pillar of her small community, and a devoted wife and mother. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her.

Provided in partnership with Heartland Senior Services.
