Book Discussion: Wednesday, April 27 at 6 p.m. “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time” by Mark Haddon. Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He also really can’t stand to be touched. He relates well to animals, but has no understanding of human emotions.  When his neighbor’s poodle is killed and Christopher is falsely accused of the crime, he decides to track down the killer.
