Adult Book Discussion: Our Souls at Night

Monday, June 4, 2018 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm
This month's Adult Book Discussion book will be Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf.

Addie's husband died years ago, as did Louis' wife. His daughter lives hours away, her son even farther, and Addie and Louis have long been living alone in empty houses, terribly lonely. But maybe that could change? As Addie and Louis come to know each other better-their pleasures and their difficulties-a beautiful story of second chances unfolds.

Copies of the book are available in regular and large type. Loans will also be available in audio and eBook formats. Join us for a lively discussion.

Polish Heritage Book Club: Death in Breslau

Thursday, June 14, 2018 -
3:00pm to 4:30pm
Join us every other month for an English-language book discussion group focused on literature related to Poland and Polish culture.

This month we're discussing Death in Breslau by Marek Krajewski.

Police Inspector Eberhard Mock is called to investigate the murder of two young women. But uncovering the truth is no straightforward matter in occupied Breslau, a city is in the grip of the Gestapo, where spies are everywhere, corrupt ministers torture confessions, and Freemasons guard their secrets with blackmail and violence.
