    This book club will feature Grand Opening, by Jon Hassler. The year is 1944, and Hank and Catherine Foster have packed up their belongings, a 12-year-old son, and his 80-year-old grandfather and moved to Plum, Minnesota. Unaccustomed to life in a small town, they struggle to establish a successful supermarket while adjusting to the close-minded townspeople and their religious bigotry. Jon Hassler was Jim Olsen’s mentor. Jim, a local author who also taught this novel in a literature course at SJU, will attend the meeting to lead the discussion on this book, which was Jon Hassler’s fifth novel. Refreshments will be served.
