Library Book Group


Adult Book Club

The Heart of America Library Book Discussion Group will meet on Wednesday, October 3 at 10 AM.

The book this time is The Round House by Louise Erdrich.  The Round House won the National Book Award for fiction. One of the most revered novelists of our time—a brilliant chronicler of Native-American life—Louise Erdrich returns to the territory of her bestselling, Pulitzer Prize finalist The Plague of Doves with The Round House, transporting readers to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. It is an exquisitely told story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends and forever transforms his family.

You can pick up a copy of the book at the library.
