October Book CaféEverybody’s Got Something by Robin Roberts is a memoir in which the beloved news anchor recounts her journey to “…something and my road to something better.”

Following her mother's advice to "make your mess your message," Robin taught a nation of viewers that while it is true that we've all got something -- a medical crisis to face, aging parents to care for, heartbreak in all its many forms --- we've also all got something to give: hope, encouragement, a life-saving transplant or a spirit-saving embrace. As Robin has learned, and what readers of her remarkable story will come to believe as well, it's all about faith, family and friends and finding out that you are stronger, much stronger, than you think.

The Book Café book club is scheduled to meet Thursday, October 5th at 1:00 p.m. Come in and check out a copy of Everybody’s Got Something and join us for a discussion, coffee, and cookies next month.
