On Tuesday, September 19, at 1:00 p.m., join MML’s Open Book Discussion Group to discuss the featured book The Day the World Came to Town by Jim DeFede. When 38 jetliners bound for the United States were forced to land at Gander International Airport in Canada by the closing of U.S. airspace on September 11, the population of this small town on Newfoundland Island swelled from 10,300 to nearly 17,000. This book recounts the inspiring story of the residents of Gander, Canada, whose acts of kindness have touched the lives of thousands of people and been an example of humanity and goodwill. Copies can be found at the library. It is not necessary to attend all of the meetings, and you are welcome to come and go as you please.
