Adult Book Club

The More You Stir It by John Pesta

 

Small-town newspaper editor Phil Larrison gets tangled up in another mystery in the picturesque hills, or knobs, of southern Indiana. This time Phil, who first appeared in Safely Buried, gets involved with seventeen-year-old Kelly Marcott, whose mother has exiled him from Los Angeles to keep him out of trouble.

 

The Adult Book Club provides an informal, congenial atmosphere for patrons over eighteen years of age to share their literary interpretations of the current book selection. Everyone should read the month’s selection before the meeting.  Please feel free to attend even if you haven’t finished the book as long as you don’t mind hearing how the book ends.  Everyone is encouraged to participate in the discussion, but listeners are welcome.

Light refreshments are served by individuals from the group on a volunteer basis.  Extra copies of the book selection are available one month in advance at the library circulation desk.

My Louisiana Sky by Kimberly W. Holt

 

Tiger Ann Parker is smart in school and good at baseball, but she's forever teased about her family by the girls in class. Tiger Ann knows her folks are different from others in their small town of Saitter, Louisiana. They are mentally slow, and Tiger Ann keeps her pain and embarrassment hidden as long as her strong and smart Granny runs the household. Then Granny dies suddenly and Aunt Dorie Kay arrives, offering Tiger Ann a way out. Now Tiger Ann must make the most important decision of her life.

Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah

 

Summary: Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father falls ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters. As children, the only connection between them was the Russian fairy tale Anya sometimes told the girls at night.

Kids Only Book Club

Kids Only Book Club

2nd, 3rd, & 4th Grade

Participants must have read one book before each meeting. During the meeting each participant will give a brief book talk about their selection. Keep in mind that the goal of a book talk is to tell enough about the title to encourage fellow participants to read the title, without giving away the ending. 
Following the book talks, participants will have time to socialize, make recommendations for future programs, and participate in various group activities. 


Snacks will be provided during all meetings. If your child has any food allergies or food related medical conditions, please send a snack with your child.

Bus transportation after school is available to the library, please check with your school for current bus route.

All Parents: Should make arrangements to pick up their children promptly at 4:30 p.m.

If school is canceled due to weather the book club will also be canceled and that meeting will not be rescheduled.

Adult Book Club

Charlotte's web by E.B. White

 

Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur's life when he was born the runt of his litter.

 

The Adult Book Club provides an informal, congenial atmosphere for patrons over eighteen years of age to share their literary interpretations of the current book selection. Everyone should read the month’s selection before the meeting.  Please feel free to attend even if you haven’t finished the book as long as you don’t mind hearing how the book ends.  Everyone is encouraged to participate in the discussion, but listeners are welcome.

Light refreshments are served by individuals from the group on a volunteer basis.  Extra copies of the book selection are available one month in advance at the library circulation desk.
 
Registration is required.
