The Kilbourn Public Library Book Discussion Group is reading Joyce Maynard’s Labor Day this month.

With the end of summer closing in and a steamy Labor Day weekend looming int the town of Holton Mills, New Hampshire, lonely, friendless thirteen - year - old Henry spends most of his time watching television, reading, and daydreaming with only his emotionally fragile, long - divorced mother for company. But everything changes on the Thursday before the holiday weekend when a mysterious bleeding man named Frank asks Henry for a hand. Over the next five days, Henry will learn some of life's most valuable lessons.

Join us on Monday, August 25 at 6:30 p.m. or Wednesday, August 27 at 1:30 p.m. to discuss this timely and enchanting novel. Then join us in September when we watch the movie based on this book.
