Book Club

Afternoon Book Club (Meets every 4-6 weeks at 1:00pm)

We will be discussing "The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend" by Katarina Bivald. Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds that Amy's funeral has just ended. Luckily, the townspeople are happy to look after their bewildered tourist--even if they don't understand her peculiar need for books. Marooned in a farm town that's almost beyond repair, Sara starts a bookstore in honor of her friend's memory. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.

Evening Book Club (Meets every other month at 7:00pm)
Next Meeting is Monday, June 17 at 7:00pm in Board Room
We will be discussing "Girls Burn Brighter" by Shobha Rao. Poornima and Savitha have three strikes against them: they are poor, they are ambitious, and they are girls. After her mother’s death, Poornima has very little kindness in her life. She is left to care for her siblings until her father can find her a suitable match. So when Savitha enters their household, Poornima is intrigued by the joyful, independent-minded girl. Suddenly their Indian village doesn't feel quite so claustrophobic, and Poornima begins to imagine a life beyond arranged marriage. But when a devastating act of cruelty drives Savitha away, Poornima leaves behind everything she has ever known to find her friend. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.
