Author: Linda Castillo

The Evening Book Club meets on the third Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Chute Public Library. All are welcome! August's title is "Sworn to Silence" by Linda Castillo. The story follows Police chief Kate Burkholder as she investigates unsolved murders that appear to point to a serial killer who bring to light the divide between the Amish and English worlds.

This book club's event is a tie-in as Linda Castillo is in the Fox Cities for the 2018 Fox Cities Book Festival. She will be at the Kimberly Public Library on Saturday, October 13th at 6:30 PM.

If you need a copy of the book, visit the front desk at either library location or place the title on hold at infosoup.org to get a copy before the discussion.
