Book Clubs

The library hosts the following 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 meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at Seth's Coffee at 106 E Main Street, Little Chute.

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.

A profoundly moving story of family, history, and the meaning of home, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, exploring the divisions between cultures and the rifts within a family as they struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

This month we'll be discussing Inside the O'Briens by Lisa Genova. From the "New York Times" bestselling author of Still Alice comes a powerful and transcendent new novel about a family struggling with the impact of Huntington's disease.

Joe O'Brien is a forty-four-year-old police officer from the Irish Catholic neighborhood of Charlestown, Massachusetts. A devoted husband, proud father of four children in their twenties, and respected officer, Joe begins experiencing bouts of disorganized thinking, uncharacteristic temper outbursts, and strange, involuntary movements.
