Book Clubs

The library hosts four book clubs.

  1. The Book Sayers meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
  2. The Evening Book Club meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Chute Public Library.
  3. Books & Brews is a new book club for the 20's & 30's crowd. We meet the first Monday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at Seth's Coffee at 106 E Main Street, Little Chute.
  4. The Great Beginnings Book Club is a group which meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the Kimberly 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 groups pride themselves on being a "reader driven" rather than a "leader driven" and choices are made based on titles that appeal to them at the time. Registration is not necessary and is open to adults.

Author: Rob Lowe

We'll be discussing Stories I Only Tell My Friends: An Autobiography by Rob Lowe. A teen idol at fifteen, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at twenty, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences as a painfully misunderstood child actor in Ohio uprooted to the wild counterculture of mid-seventies Malibu.

Author: Erik Larson

We'll be discussing Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson. On May 1st, 1915 the Lusitania set sail on its final voyage. That it was sunk by a German U-boat will be news to few—and Larson’s challenge is to craft a historical narrative leading up to the thrilling, if known, conclusion, building anticipation in his readers along the way. Focusing on the politics of WWI, on nautical craftsmanship and strategy, and on key players in the eventual attack and sinking of the “fast, comfortable, and beloved” Lusitania, Larson once again illustrates his gift for seducing us with history and giving it a human face. Dead Wake puts readers right aboard the famous Cunard liner and keeps them turning the pages until the book’s final, breathless encounter.

Author: Lynda Drews

We will be discussing Run at Destruction by Lynda Drews. Deeply immersed in the close-knit culture of long-distance running, Pam and Bob Bulik were avid competitors. To all appearances, they were also a happily married couple, devoted to each other and their two young children. Then Bob made a fateful decision. He began an extramarital affair that led to his wife's tragic death and to one of the most sensationalized and heavily attended trials in Green Bay's history.

Author: Stephen King

Meet us at Seth's Coffee to discuss Pet Sematary by Stephen King. Dr. Louis Creed and his wife Rachel chose rural Maine to settle his family and bring up their children. It was a better place than smog-covered Chicago -- or so he thought. But that was before he became acquainted with the pet burial ground located in the backwoods of the quiet community of Ludlow. The place has a power -- it seeps into your dreams and you wake up sweating with fear. It is a place that strikes dread into the lives of all who share its secrets.
