Hi Everyone,
A group of us in the Hyde Park Book Club have put together a list of books that people staying at home might be interested in reading. They are selections from books that the book club has read and enjoyed discussing. 

The list isn't meant to be a "Top Ten" type list or "best of" anything, just simply books about Hyde Park and/or by Hyde Parkers that can be shared during these uncertain times.

The short list is below.  For more detailed descriptions, see the attached file.

Be well and keep reading,
Michal & Carol
