The Book Bunch, the Addison Public Library book discussion group, meets the first Tuesday of every month. Our current selection is:
Runner's World magazine sent journalist Christopher McDougall on an assignment of a lifetime. The Tarahumara Indians of the Copper Canyons in Mexico are a reclusive tribe who can outrun any other person alive. They do not professionally train. They do not eat high protein, low carb diets. They do not warm up. They are drunk most of the time--and they can run for days on end. They are considered the best conditioned runners in the world. Elite runners from all over the country attempt to beat the unbeatable. McDougall, who is also a long-distance runner, begins an intriguing and dangerous quest to unravel the mystery of running.

by Laura Hilderbrand
In May of 1943, a U.S. bomber crashed into the Pacific and disappeared, leaving a wash of debris, oil, gas, and blood. The bombardier, a young lieutenant, and the pilot struggled into a life raft. They travelled 2000 miles only to land in a series of Japanese prison camps. This journey is one of the most extraordinary chapters of WWII.
