Humboldt Reads!

An enjoyable hour with an informal dinner and interactive book discussion!

Please join us for our November Humboldt Reads!  It will be held on Thursday, November 15th, 5:30 pm at Pasquale’s in Humboldt, IA.  Attendees pay for their meal choice, and no pre-registration or monthly commitment is required.

This month’s selection is We’ll Always Have Christmas by Jenny Hall.

“An enchanting story about the magic of Christmas, the importance of family, and the joy of falling in love during the most romantic season of the year.

Christmas has always been a special time for Noelle Parker. Winter evenings spent with family and friends, drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies at her family’s cozy bakery have shaped her love for all things festive. But this year everything is changing.

The beloved bakery is facing closure and Noelle needs a miracle to save Christmas.
Determined to raise funds for the family business. Noelle sets about revamping the bakery while juggling a surprise new job, caring for the elderly and cantankerous William Harrington in his luxurious, sprawling mansion.

As Noelle melts the frostiness of the house with cake baking, snowball fights and glittering decorations, she helps William to reconnect with a romance that has spanned decades and unexpectedly finds herself falling for his grandson – the gorgeous but mysterious Alexander Harrington.

In the countdown to Christmas, can Noelle save the bakery, reunite a family and create some magical memories of her own along the way?”
