Books & Brew: Not Your Mother's Book Club (Cagney's)

  • The Horizon Center / Shelby Senior Services 1504 S Harrison St Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)

This is a community for younger adults, 20s-30s, and the young at heart. We meet once a month to discuss books, films, and other "hot topics" at Cagney's Pizza King. 

Copies of the book are located in the Book Club Display to the right of the main desk in the library. In May, we will be discussing THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE by Katherine Arden.

Above all, she loves the chilling story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. Wise Russians fear him, her nurse says, and honor the spirits of house and yard and forest that protect their homes from evil...

 

Zachary Balgeman, Assistant Department Head of Adult Services, will lead the discussion. Questions? (317) 398-7121 or zbalgeman@sscpl.lib.in.us
