Next on the list of books that the WMCC lunchtime book discussion group is reading is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

Set in 18th century Scotland and 20th century England, Outlander crosses all genres while weaving a story that pulls the characters--and the reader, into another world. 

Get to know Jamie and Claire's sweeping saga in the first book of the hugely successful series by the same name (before the tale becomes a television series--in 2014).  

The group is meeting in Room 122 on Thursday, November 14th at noon in Room 122.

Copies of the book and audio are available in the library.
