Cover to Cover Book Club
The Cover to Cover Book Club will discuss Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom:   When an eighty-two-year-old rabbi from Albom's old hometown asks him to deliver his eulogy, Albom goes back to his nonfiction roots and becomes involved with a Detroit pastor--a reformed drug dealer and convict--who preaches to the poor and homeless in a decaying church with a hole in its roof.
