Turning Pages Book Club
February 11, 2019
Turning Pages is a book club where everyone is welcome! We meet from 7-8pm on the 4th Monday of every month. The book for June 24th is “The Next Person You Meet in Heaven” by Mitch Albom. In the book “The Five People You Meet in Heaven” we learned about Eddie, an amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Now, this is the story of Annie and her journey. This month we are meeting at the home of Sue Orendorff, 430 W. Desert Flower Lane, Phoenix (phone, 480-460-4659).
