Discussion questions for the March Book Club book "A Week in Winter" by Maeve Binchy are available on the Penguin Random House website. Check them out as you reflect about the book.

April's Book Club pick is "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It is available on Overdrive/Libby. The mini-series based on the book is on Amazon Prime and is very faithful to the book.
