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.
The Kilbourn Public Library Book Club is starting out the year with New York Times bestselling author Nick Hornby's fourth novel A Long Way Down. The author mines the hearts and psyches of four lost souls who connect just when they’ve reached the end of the line. Four people who come together on New Year’s Eve. They encounter one another on the roof of Topper’s House, a London destination famous as the last stop for those ready to end their lives. Intense, hilarious, provocative, and moving, A Long Way Down is a novel about suicide that is, surprisingly, full of life. This month we will be meeting to discuss the book on Monday, January 25 at 6:30 pm and Wednesday, January 27 at 1:30 p.m. If you can’t join us in person, post your thoughts on our book club blog.
