“The Mystery Lovers Book Club,” at Canton Public Library, meets at a nearby Canton pub or restaurant for our book discussion. The June selection is Norwegian by Night by Derek Miller. When a crotchety old New York Jewish widower moves to live with his married granddaughter in Oslo, he’s treated with kindness and a bit of sadness, since his family believes he is slipping into dementia. A retired watchmaker, Donny Horowitz spends time recalling his own somewhat unclear service during the Korean War, and his son’s sacrifice in Vietnam. Suddenly he finds himself hiding a boy from a neighboring apartment whose Albanian refugee mother is being pursued and attacked by criminals, who want the boy. Horowitz thinks fast and goes on the run to save him. Though not long, the book is engrossing, fast-paced, and truly moving.  Call, email or come by to reserve a copy of the book. All are welcome; registration is requested. Canton Public Library is at 40 Dyer Avenue, Canton. Information: check the website at www.cantonpubliclibrary.org or call or email Beth Van Ness: (860) 693-5800, and bvanness@libraryconnection.info.
