Correction in Book Report

There were several errors in the book discussion section on page six of the March/April 2015 Book Report.  We especially regret misattributing Death of a Spymaster.  Be assured that this novel is indeed by La Grange author Russell R. Miller.

The correct listings are as follow:

Beyond Borders Reading Group - April 14, Death of a Spymaster by Russ Miller
Noir in a Bar - March 31, Care and Feeding of Exotic Pets by Diana Wagman
Adult Book Discussions - April 9, The Children Act by Ian McEwan
