Nancy Poteete will  review the Book, The Day the World Came to Town, by Jim Defede.  On 9-11, many air flights were redirected because of closed air space.   There were 38 jetliners bound for the United States that were forced to land in Gander, Newfoundland.  The book is the story of how the residents of Gander opened their hearts and homes to the passengers of those jetliners.  The book is being made into a musical called “Come from Away.”  Abbey Road Catering will serve lunch.
