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.
This month the Kilbourn Public Library Book Club is reading Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Hector Tobar. The entire world watched what transpired above-ground during the grueling and long rescue of the Chilean miners in 2010, but the story of the miners’ experiences below the Earth’s surface - and the lives that led them there - was shared exclusively with Tobar. According to Amazon this book is a “masterwork of narrative journalism - a riveting, at times shocking, emotionally textured account of a singular human event”. We will be discussing the book on three occasions.
Monday, August 29 at the Frank Fischer Senior Center in Lake Delton at 12:30 p.m.
Monday, August 29 at the library at 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August 31 at the library at 1:30 p.m.
