Book Discussion Group

The Ainsworth Public Library will be holding Book Discussions again this year. The Book Discussion Group will meet on the third Monday of each month at 2 p.m. All readers are welcome!

The first meeting will be on September 17th at 2 p.m. Please come prepared to share information on a good book you read this summer. The group will also vote on titles for future discussions.

The October book selection of “Empire Falls” by Richard Russo will be handed out at this time. This title was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction in the year of 2002. In this book, Russo delves deep into the blue-collar heart of America in a work that in full of hilarity, heartache, and grace. Miles has been slinging burgers at the Empire Grill for 20 years, a job that cost him his college education and much of his self-respect. What keeps him there? It could be his bright, sensitive daughter Tick, who needs all his help surviving the local high school. Or maybe it Janine, Miles’ soon-to-be ex-wife, who’s taken up with a noxiously vain health-club proprietor. Or perhaps it’s the imperious Francine, who owns everything in town-and seems to believe that “everything” includes Miles himself. We will meet to share thoughts on this book on October 15th.

Please join in the reading fun!
