For our next book, the America House Book Club will be reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. But what are the real-life events behind the book? In this event, we'll learn more about the September 11, 2001 tragedy. We'll also look at how people came together in the aftermath. Come join the discussion! You'll hopefully be inspired to read the book and join our book club meeting in the fall.
Don't forget your passport or driver's license.
