In June, we will be reading Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand. Visiting Nantucket for the summer, three women seek peace and comfort as they cope with the challenges in their lives - from marriage, infidelity, and the mayhem of motherhood to scandal, tragedy and illness. Start your summer off with us as we discuss this novel that is as fun and memorable and bittersweet as that one perfect day of summer. We will be discussing this book twice in the month of June: Monday, June 28 at 5:30 pm and Wednesday, June 30 at 1:30 pm. Discussion will be held on the patio weather permitting.

When The Moon Is A Silver Canoe was originally written by Captain Don Saunders in 1946. The book includes history, poetry and Indian Legends of the Wisconsin Dells. Lucky for us, local resident Bonnie Alton created a revised edition of this book that is for sale here at the library. Part of the proceeds from this book go to the Friends of the Kilbourn Public Library so stop in and grab a copy to help support the library and our local author! Copies are sold for $20.00.
