Titles on Tap - September @ Napper Tandy's, Norwood | Norwood | Massachusetts | United States

Our book for September 2018 will be “One of Us is Lying” by Karen McManus. This hit 2017 Young Adult novel is a fast-paced mystery: “When the creator of a high school gossip app mysteriously dies in front of four high-profile students, all four become suspects. It’s up to them to solve the case.” Copies are available at the Reference Desk, and both the ebook and audiobook are available digitally through Overdrive. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 9/25 @ 7:30 pm!

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more.
