Library Readers Club for March 10 is Vanishing Act by Jodi Picoult. With Vanishing Act, Jodi Picoult explores how life, as we know it, might not turn out the way we imagined; how the people we've loved and trusted can suddenly change before our very eyes; and how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat. Once again, Picoult handles an astonishing and timely topic with understanding, insight, and compassion. Copies of Vanishing Act are available at the Bolton Library. Town Offices Closed Feb 19 20
