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 5:30 p.m. and the last Wednesday afternoon of the month at 1:30 p.m. to discuss the featured book. Currently we are meeting virtually on Zoom for engaging and enjoyable discussion. Everyone is welcome.
For the month of February the Kilbourn Public Library will be discussing Chris Cleave's novel Everyone Brave is Forgiven. This is a love story set during the height of World War II in London and the island of Malta from 1939 to 1942. Based on the love letters of the author's grandparents, the story follows a young woman named Mary who is made a teacher by the British War Office. She encounters Allistair, who has enilsted in the Army because of his friend. The two fall in love and are continually tested by the heat and violence of the war in ways they could not have possibly imagined. The Book Club will be discussing this novel on Monday, February 26 at 6:30 pm and Wednesday, February 28 at 1:30 pm. 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. Each month KPL staff will post discussion topics and questions to spark conversation.
