But the already dirty campaign is about to get
downright filthy—with one candidate getting buried six
With her strong opinions and knack for getting into
trouble, Reagan is not an ideal volunteer for her
mother’s alderman campaign. Plus, she’d rather be

eating doughnuts with her dog, Bruce Willis. But when

mother is pegged as a suspect, Reagan nominates
herself as lead murder investigator.

Novel Ideas (Morning)
Novels at Night
Erie Business Book Club Meeting
by Malcolm Gladwell
When: Thursday, April 3rd at 7:30 AM
In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us
on an intellectual journey through the world of
"outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most
famous and the most successful. He asks the
question: what makes high-achievers different?
His answer is that we pay too much attention to what
successful people are like, and too little attention
to where they are from: that is, their culture,
their family, their generation, and the
idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along
the way he explains the secrets of software
billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer
player, why Asians are good at math, and what made
the Beatles the greatest rock band.
to Win Friends & Influence People in the
Digital Age by Dale Carnegie & Assoc.
When: Thursday, May 1st at 7:30 AM
An adaptation of Dale Carnegie’s timeless
prescriptions for the digital age.
Dale Carnegie’s time-tested advice has carried
millions upon millions of readers for more than
seventy-five years up the ladder of success in their
business and personal lives. Now the first and best
book of its kind has been rebooted to tame the
complexities of modern times and will teach you how
to communicate with diplomacy and tact, capitalize
on a solid network, make people like you, project
your message widely and clearly, be a more effective
leader, increase your ability to get things done,
and optimize the power of digital tools.
| April's Selection
- Cuernavaca with author Richard Perhacs
When: Saturday, May 17th from 11AM - 1PM
Copies of the book will be for sale at the signing for
14.95 and refreshments provided.
Richard Perhacs practices law in Erie, PA. An author of
professional works, Cuernavaca is his debut novel.
Scott Flores’ life implodes overnight.
All that he’s built—a promising career as a standout
college professor, his reputation as a brilliant young
anthropologist and a near perfect marriage to his
beautiful wife—is leveled and none of his personal
fortune can change what happens. Grappling with the
devastating aftermath and battling his own personal
demons, he finds himself on an airplane headed to
southern Mexico and the city of Cuernavaca, at the
desperate urging of his mentor, fellow anthropologist
The chance for a new start at a fascinating
archeological dig turns into the ultimate test of
character when he’s dragged into a shadowy underworld
hidden behind the gritty charm of this new land. It’s an
invisible world of good versus evil, black-market
smuggling, merciless criminals and murder—all punctuated
by a corrupt legal system.
Set in contemporary Mexico against the backdrop of a
wildly-contested national election that touches Scott’s
life in ways he doesn’t understand, Cuernavaca showcases
the best and worst of a nation struggling to recreate
itself as Scott struggles to earn his own second chance.
