Book Club

Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That’s just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they’ll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on Hemlock Street without a rooftop Frosty; they aren’t even going to have a tree. They won’t need one, because come December 25 they’re setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences–and isn’t half as easy as they’d imagined. (courtesy of the John Grisham website)

Ant-Man and the Wasp movie poster

Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man and the Wasp functions as an origin story.  Dr. Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, sends Scott Lang on a mission to run down information about Pym’s earliest exploits.  Most importantly, Pym wants to know whether his original superhero partner, The Wasp, is still alive.  At the same time, Lang, the current Ant-Man, has to make the life balance between being a superhero and a dad work.
