The life-affirming Warriors Book Club zooming on September 14

The Warriors Book Club, a monthly group of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program, will discuss Shelby Van Pelt’s novel “Remarkably Bright Creatures” on Thursday, September 14, 2023, from 7 to 8 pm. The book is an exploration of friendship and hope, tracing a widow’s unlikely connection with a giant, misanthropic Pacific octopus. This debut novel was an instant New York Times bestseller and named bestselling book of the summer by Chicago Tribune, The View, Southern Living and USA Today. 

The Warriors Books Club is the creation of Adelphi Hotline Volunteer Lynne Borah, who is a 21-year survivor of breast cancer and a hotline volunteer. “Reading takes me into another world and I love bringing others with me,” says the Plainview resident who facilitates the on-line discussion group.

For information and to register for this free zoom event, contact Nina Foley at 516-877-4315 or email her at

Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program offers emotional support and information to people with and/or concerned about breast cancer. To reach the Hotline, which is staffed by volunteers who are breast cancer survivors, call 800-877-8077.
