The Afternoon Book Club will be discussing Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear. Humble housemaid Maisie Dobbs climbs convincingly up Britain's social ladder, becoming in turn a university student, a wartime nurse and ultimately a private investigator. At different points in her remarkable career, Maisie crosses paths with a military surgeon to whom she's attracted despite his disfigurement from a bomb blast at the front.

The Evening Book Club will be discussing Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler. Eighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a favor to ask her hairdresser, Dorrie Curtis. It's a big one. Isabelle wants Dorrie, a black single mom in her thirties, to drop everything and drive her from Texas to a funeral in Cincinnati. Dorrie scarcely hesitates before agreeing - not knowing it will be a journey that changes both their lives.

Book Clubs

The library hosts two book clubs.

  1. The afternoon club meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
  2. The evening club meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Chute Public Library.

New members are always encouraged to attend. The group typically chooses a book to discuss at the following meeting. The subject varies widely from fiction to nonfiction, light to esoteric reading. The group prides itself on being a "reader driven" rather than a "leader driven" group and choices are made based on titles that appeal to them at the time. Registration is not necessary and is open to adults.
