Join us on the third Thursday of every month to find out if the book really is better than the movie. Each month we will read a book and then come together to watch the movie adaptation and discuss our thoughts. Pizza will be served, so make sure to register so we know how much to order! This month we will be reading and watching: A Street Cat Named Bob. The book is available for pickup at the library circulation desk. You can also place a hold on a large print copy, or a book on CD. It is also available online as a hoopla audiobook, which can be accessed with your library card.
About the Book
James is a street musician struggling to make ends meet.
Bob is a stray cat looking for somewhere warm to sleep.
When James and Bob meet, they forge a never-to-be-forgotten friendship that has been charming readers from Thailand to Turkey.
A Street Cat Named Bob is an international sensation, landing on the bestseller list in England for 52 consecutive weeks and selling in 26 countries around the world.
When street musician James Bowen found an injured cat curled up in the hallway of his apartment building, he had no idea how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London, barely making enough money to feed himself, and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn’t resist helping the strikingly intelligent but very sick animal, whom he named Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining that he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas.
