Beartown by Fredrik Backman

Winning a junior ice hockey championship means everything to the residents of Beartown, a community slowly being eaten alive by unemployment and the surrounding wilderness. At first, it seems like the team might have a shot at fulfilling the dreams of their entire town. But one night at a drunken celebration following a key win, something happens between a player and the general manager’s daughter–and the next day everything seems to have changed. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected. At last, it falls to one young man to find the courage to speak the truth that it seems no one else wants to hear.– Provided by publisher

We Were the Lucky Ones by Georgia Hunter

It is the spring of 1939, and three generations of the Kurc family are doing their best to live normal lives despite the increasing hardships facing Jews in their hometown of Radom, Poland. But soon the horrors overtaking Europe will become inescapable and the Kurc family will be flung to the far corners of the earth, each desperately trying to chart his or her own path toward safety. We Were the Lucky Ones is a tribute to the capacity of the human spirit to endure in the face of the twentieth century’s darkest moment– Provided by publisher.

Evening Book Club

Usually the last Monday of each month @ 6:30 pm. Location rotates between various eating spots.  Order your copy using the library catalog or ask us for help.

Nineteen-years-old and pregnant, Matilda Emmerson has been sent away from Ireland in disgrace.
