THOMASTON — On Tuesday Jan. 15, at 2:30 p.m., the Thomaston Intergenerational Book Club will meet to discuss: Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald.
Once you let a book into your life, the most unexpected things can happen...
Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds that Amy's funeral has just ended. Luckily, the townspeople are happy to look after their bewildered tourist — even if they don't understand her peculiar need for books. Marooned in a farm town that's almost beyond repair, Sara starts a bookstore in honor of her friend's memory.
All she wants is to share the books she loves with the citizens of Broken Wheel and to convince them that reading is one of the great joys of life. But she makes some unconventional choices that could force a lot of secrets into the open and change things for everyone in town.
Reminiscent of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, this is a warm, witty book about friendship, stories, and love, according to a news release.
On the third Tuesday of every month, the Intergenerational Book Club, a group of men and women of all ages, comes together at the library to share their opinions and ideas about the selected book.
All are welcome at the Thomaston Library on January 15 at 2:30 p.m.
If you live in Thomaston and would like to attend but need a ride, call the library at 354-2453 a week before the discussion date.
The next book selection for discussion on February 19 is Mrs. Sinclair's Suitcase by Louise Walters.
Copies will be available at the library to borrow.
