In quaint Haddonfield, Tess is about to marry Gabe in her childhood home.

Her mother, Helen, is in a panic about the guests, who include warring exes, crying babies, jealous girlfriends, and too many psychiatrists.

But the most difficult guest was never on the list at all: a woman in a wedding dress and a gas mask, armed with a rifle, a bomb trigger strapped to her arm. Call (856) 429–1304 to register for this free program co-sponsored by the Haddonfield Friends of the Library.

“Turn the Page,” Haddonfield Public Library’s lively monthly book club, will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25 to discuss the novel Man in the Woods.

Written by Scott Spencer, a National Book award nominated author, the novel explores the role that chance or accident plays in the lives of its characters. Part crime novel with a controversial ending, it’s sure to foster great discussion. New members are always welcome! Please join us; refreshments will be served.
