Real Stories for Real Life is a new nonfiction book club that meets the 4th Wednesday of each month at 12:00 p.m. in the Makerspace “We will meet on Wednesday, January 22nd to discuss the book “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson” said Janis Eberly, Interlibrary Loan Specialist at PPL. “I have copies available in the Computer Lab that anyone with a PPL card can borrow and then join in the book club discussion. Bring a lunch, as this book club is designed for the working crowd!”
“The goal of this new nonfiction book club is to discuss courage in our culture and focus on real-life people that are doing courageous and amazing things around us. We choose uplifting stories and then have a general discussion about the book, along with certain questions and topics. Our January meeting will then choose the next book for February, which can be picked up the following week”, said Eberly.
“Keep your eyes peeled for April, when the Walkin’ Talkin’ Book Club that meets at River Park Square and walks the Greenway Trail returns!”, ended Eberly.
PPL is also host to the Marshall County Book Club, which meets the first Wednesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the Jim Neu Room. Hosted by Ellen Pitcher, this group discusses a recently read book, then chooses a new book to read for the next month. The Marshall County Book Club covers both fiction and nonfiction. February’s title is “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd, and copies can be picked up at Janis’ desk in the Computer Lab.
See you at the library!
