For December, the adult book club picked The Guncle by Steven Rowley, known for Lily and the Octopus and The Editor. The Guncle, published May 2021, promises to be a good, light-hearted read, perfect for the holiday season.
Pick up copies of the book at the Syracuse Public Library or check out an e-book via Libby/OverDrive. Then attend a book club discussion! The Zoom discussion occurs at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 14. The in-person meeting follows at 1 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 16. Contact Becky for more information or a Zoom invitation.
Patrick, or Gay Uncle Patrick (GUP, for short), has always loved his niece, Maisie, and nephew, Grant. That is, he loves spending time with them when they come out to Palm Springs for weeklong visits, or when he heads home to Connecticut for the holidays. But in terms of caretaking and relating to two children, no matter how adorable, Patrick is honestly a bit out of his league.
