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 at the library 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. Copies of the book are available at the library and on the bookmobile. Everyone is welcome. If you can't make any of our meetings, post your comments and thoughts on our Book Club Blog.
The Kilbourn Public Library will be reading Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trail of Harper Lee by Casey Cep. A true-crime book that delves into a dramatic murder trial in 1970s Alabama, Furious Hours goes in depth into the trial, the key participants, and Harper Lee, the writer who spent years of her life after her success with To Kill a Mockingbird attempting to write her own true-crime book about the sensational trial. "Furious Hours delivers a gripping, incredibly well-written portrait of not only Harper Lee, but also of mid-20th century Alabama, and a still unanswered set of crimes to rival the serial killers made infamous in the same time period." We will be discussing this book on Wednesday, March 25 at 1:30pm and Monday, March 30 at 6:30pm. Join us for a lively discussion and treats. If you can't join us in person, visit our book club blog at kplbookclub.blogspot.com and let us know what you thought of the book. Everyone is welcome!
