NEEDVILLE BOOKWORMS TO DISCUSS
MARLEY AND ME
The monthly meeting of the Needville Bookworms will take place on Thursday, July 16, beginning at 12:00 noon, in the Meeting Room at Fort Bend County Libraries’ Albert George Branch Library, 9230 Gene Street in Needville. Bring a sack lunch and enjoy a lively discussion of Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog, written by John Grogan.
Newlyweds John and Jenny Grogan decided to ease into parenthood by starting with a charming yellow Labrador puppy named Marley. His uninhibited puppy antics were cute in the beginning, but they looked forward to the day when he would outgrow his destructive puppy ways. Unfortunately, Marley’s behavior only grew more outlandish, leading to numerous awkward and embarrassing encounters for the growing Grogan family. Marley & Mechronicles the Grogans’ adventures with their lovably naughty canine companion with much laughter and love.
John Grogan was a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer and former editor of Organic Gardening magazine. After Marley’s death, Grogan paid a tribute to his canine friend with a memorial in his newspaper column. The popularity of the tribute inspired Grogan to pen a memoir on the lovable beast. Marley & Me quickly soared to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.
The Needville Bookworms Book Club meets on the third Thursday of every month. The book club is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Albert George Branch Library at 979-793-4270 or the library system’s Public Information Office at 281-633-4734.
