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 3rd 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.

The Book Sayers

Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 1:00pm - 2:30pm ~ Kimberly Public Library

Author: Willa Cather

Join The Book Sayers in January to discuss Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather. Willa Cather's best known novel is an epic--almost mythic--story of a single human life lived simply in the silence of the southwestern desert. In 1851 Father Jean Marie Latour comes to serve as the Apostolic Vicar to New Mexico. What he finds is a vast territory of red hills and tortuous arroyos, American by law but Mexican and Indian in custom and belief. In the almost forty years that follow, Latour spreads his faith in the only way he knows--gently, all the while contending withan unforgiving landscape, derelict and sometimes openly rebellious priests, and his own loneliness. Out of these events, Cather gives us an indelible vision of life unfolding in a place where time itself seems suspended.
