Details: There is nothing better than curling up with a good book. Plan to join us on Thursday, May 10th, at 5:30 PM at Level 2 Global Food and Lounge, where we will meet, eat, drink and discuss this months selection, Digging In by Loretta Nyhan.

In author Loretta Nyhan’s warm, witty, and wonderful novel, a widow discovers an unexpected chance to start over – right in her own backyard.

Paige Moresco found her true love in eighth grade – and lost him two years ago. Since his death, she’s been sleepwalking through life, barely holding on for the sake of her teenage son. Her house is a wreck, the grass is overrun with weeds, and she’s at risk of losing her job. As Paige stares at her neglected lawn, she knows she’s hit rock bottom. So she does something entirely unexpected: she begins to dig.

As the hole gets bigger, Paige decides to turn her entire yard into a vegetable garden. The neighbors in her tidy gated community are more than a little alarmed. Paige knows nothing about gardening, and she’s boldly flouting neighborhood-association bylaws. But with the help of new friends, a charming local cop, and the transformative power of the soil, Paige starts to see potential in the chaos of her life. Something big is beginning to take root – both in her garden and in herself.
