You’re Invited to Our Evening Book Club

Posted Jan 27, 2015

The Shorewood Public Library is starting its very own evening book group, and we want you to join us!  Meeting the first Wednesday of every month at 7:00 PM, we will explore a diverse selection of books, including fiction and non-fiction titles a like.  This is a great opportunity to talk about what you’ve read, learn something new, discover new books, and meet new friends.     

Our first meeting is Wednesday, March 4th, and our first book is Shorewood Reads 2015’s Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler!

Sharing a childhood in small-town Wisconsin before going their separate ways with careers and families, Hank, Leland, Kip and Ronny are reunited during a visit marked by culture clashes, respective pursuits of meaning and a woman who inspires passion in each of them.

Upcoming titles include:
