Event Location: 
Fireside Lounge - Martin Luther Chapel

Join with others for our monthly book discussion from 7-8:30 pm in the Fireside Lounge at Martin Luther Chapel.  The book for April will be The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom. Extra copies of the book are available in the Chapel office so please stop in and sign out a copy.

The voice of Music narrates the tale of its most beloved disciple, Frankie Presto, a Spanish war orphan raised by a blind music teacher. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six magical strings. Along the way, Frankie influences many artists: he translates for Django Reinhardt, advises Little Richard, backs up Elvis Presley, and counsels Hank Williams. Frankie elevates to a rock star himself, yet his gift becomes his burden, as he realizes that he can actually affect people’s futures: his guitar strings turn blue whenever a life is altered. Overwhelmed by life, loss, and this power, he disappears for years, only to reemerge in a spectacular and mysterious farewell.
