KPL Book Club

The Kilbourn Public Library Book Club is open to all adults interested in getting together for informal discussion on selected books. Each month a book is chosen and copies are available here at the library and on the bookmobile for interested readers.  The book club meets on the last Monday evening of the month at 6:30 p.m. and the last Wednesday afternoon of the month at 1:30 p.m. to discuss the featured book.  Coffee and treats are served along with engaging and enjoyable discussion. 

For April, the book club will be reading Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger. This novel is set in Minnesota in 1961.  It was a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president.  But for thirteen-year-old Frank Drum it was a grim summer in which death visited frequently and assumed many forms.   Accident.  Nature.  Suicide.  Murder.  Told from Frank’s perspective forty years after that fateful summer, Ordinary Grace is a brilliantly moving account of a boy standing at the door of his young manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him.

The book club will be discussing Ordinary Grace by one of our favorite authors William Kent Krueger on two different occasions in April to try to accommodate everyone’s schedule.  You are welcome to join us either Monday, April 27 at 6:30 p.m. or Wednesday, April 29 at 1:30 p.m. If you can't meet with us in person, you are able to join in the discussion by visiting KPL Reads (our book club blog) and posting your comments.
