It’s National Reading Group Month! Come in and join ours on Saturday, October 11 for a discussion of Defending Jacob by William Landay. New members always welcome! Meetings take place from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Community Room.
Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney for two decades. His quiet suburb is stunned by a shocking crime: a young boy stabbed to death in a leafy park. And an even greater shock: the accused is Andy’s own son—shy, awkward, mysterious Jacob. Andy believes in Jacob’s innocence. Any parent would. But the pressure mounts. Damning evidence. Doubt. A faltering marriage. The neighbors’ contempt. A murder trial that threatens to obliterate Andy’s family.
It is the ultimate test for any parent: How far would you go to protect your child?
