Cazenovia The Open Afternoon Book Club for adults continues in the Cazenovia Public Library Story Garden at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 19. All are welcome. This month the group is reading “Defending Jacob,” by William Landay.
A fast, compelling, and compulsively readable courtroom drama, “Defending Jacob” tells the story of a district attorney’s son who is accused of killing a classmate. As the father attempts to prove his son’s innocence, Landay explores uncomfortable territory: can a tendency toward violence be inherited? Is the capacity for murder a genetic disposition?
The Open Afternoon Book Club is free and open to the public. Books are available at the circulation desk and all are welcome. For more information on the book clubs or other events at the Cazenovia Public Library, call 655-9322 or visit cazenoviapubliclibrary.org.
