DuPage Boomers Summer Book Club Selection Announced

DuPage Boomers announces its next Book Club selection: Long Drive Home, by Will Allison.

“Life can change in an instant because of one small mistake. For Glen Bauer, all it takes is a quick jerk of the steering wheel, intended to scare a reckless driver. But the reckless driver is killed, and just like that, Glen’s placid suburban existence begins to unravel,” also from

With popularity for the Book Club growing steadily, the selections are chosen by members. New this month, members are invited to meet for dinner before the book discussion begins to include more time to socialize.
