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.
We are very excited to announce the book club selection for the month of September! We will be discussing our very own Michael Dodd's newest book Except for His Wings. Most of you remember Michael as an employee and volunteer here at the library but he is also an author and we are sure you are going to enjoy this book. His novel is about Corny Shane, who is a recovering alcoholic trying to rebuild his shattered life in the Texas Hill Country. The story begins wwhen Corny's eleven-year-old daughter comes home with a story about a boy with wings who appeared at the town park. Except for His Wings is the story of the turmoil his appearance creates in their small town. It is a story of uncertainty and confusion, of old wounds and new fears, of sorry and of hope. We will be welcoming Michael Dodd back to the library to lead the discussion during both sessions. The book wil be discussed at the library on Monday, September 25 at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, September 27 at 1:30 p.m. Books are available for checkout at the library and on the bookmobile
