Library Book Discussions Groups
Wilmette Library offers four book discussion series through the Adult Services Department. Please see details below.
|Classics & Contemporary||Monday Night Readers||Online Book Club||League of Women Voters|
Meet in the Small Meeting Room, second Tuesday of the month, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. Refreshments served.
|Join us to discuss this year's "One Book, Everybody Reads" selection, Some Luck by Jane Smiley. On their farm in Denby, Iowa, Rosanna and Walter Langdon abide by time-honored values that they pass on to their five wildly different children. Each chapter in Some Luck covers a single year, beginning in 1920, as American soldiers like Walter return home from World War I, and going up through the early 1950s.|
|Join us to discuss Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut. Based on the author's wartime experiences, this is a "science fiction" and antiwar classic. We follow Billy Pilgrim, abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore where he is displayed like a zoo animal. But in his mind he returns again and again to his time as an American prisoner of war who witnesses the firebombing of Dresden during WWII.|
Great for commuters and anyone who prefers a book club without meetings. Create an account at www.goodreads.com search "Groups" for "Wilmette Public Library" and post your comments at any time.

Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson
"..Just Mercy is a remarkable amalgam, at once a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields." (New York Review of Books)
