100 YEARS OF BOOKS BOOK CLUB

girlwithbkshlf

We're Celebrating our 100th Birthday in 2015. One of our celebrations will be all about books. We will be hosting a monthly book club that will focus on 10 decades of books. We'll read a book each from 10 decades of the 20th Century and one from the 21st. Come enjoy a journey through the decades in our books. See how books and authors have changed in the course of a century, and find out what your grandparents and great grandparents thought was compelling literature! All of these books were on the "Best Seller" lists of the day.

Books will be available at the desk a month before the book is discussed. In addition, we'll be showing the movie that each of these books spawned. You'll be able to decide which is better: the book or the movie!
