Imagining Thanksgiving 1962 in American Boy

Larry Watson's new book American Boy starts on Thanksgiving Day, 1962, when the shooting of a young woman sets off a chain of events in a small Minnesota town.  Booklist, which gave American Boy a starred review, describes the book as a modern-day Catcher in the Rye, and also recommends it as a crossover title for teenaged readers.  Happy Thanksgiving (and happy reading) from your Community Library.
