This month, the Ruiz Readers Book Group will be discussing The Diviners, by Libba Bray - an intriguing novel about seventeen-year-old Evie O'Neill, who is thrilled when she is exiled from small-town Ohio to New York City in 1926, even when a rash of occult-based murders thrusts Evie and her uncle, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult, into the thick of the investigation.

Join us to discuss The Diviners or your favorite book.
For further information, contact Amy Morris, Ruiz Branch Supervisor, at 816-701-3565.
