The Southwest Book Club will meet on Tuesday, October 28, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Southwest Library to discuss the book, The Geography of Bliss
by Eric Weiner.
This book uses a mixture of travel, psychology, science, and humor to investigate not what happiness is, but where it is. The author takes the reader on a journey from America to Iceland to India in search of happiness.
The book may be reserved for home delivery or location pick-up at http://www.ocls.info
Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend. The book club meets monthly at the Southwest Branch Library. For more information, please call 407.835.7323 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
