Southside Book Club: A Simple Favor
Monday, January 14 at 6:00 p.m. at the Southside Branch Library
Join the Southside Branch Book Club for a discussion of A Simple Favor by Darcey Bell, the domestic thriller that was recently adapted into a major motion picture starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick.

Nicky and her son Miles are classmates and best friends, and the five-year-olds love being together—just like she and Emily. A widow and stay-at-home mommy blogger living in woodsy suburban Connecticut, Stephanie was lonely until she met Emily, a sophisticated PR executive whose job in Manhattan demands so much of her time.
But Emily doesn’t come back. She doesn’t answer calls or return texts. Stephanie knows something is terribly wrong...
