The Afternoon Book Club will be discussing The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. This robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans.
The library hosts two book clubs.
- The afternoon club meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
- The evening club meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Chute Public Library.
New members are always encouraged to attend. The group typically chooses a book to discuss at the following meeting. The subject varies widely from fiction to nonfiction, light to esoteric reading. The group prides itself on being a "reader driven" rather than a "leader driven" group and choices are made based on titles that appeal to them at the time. Registration is not necessary and is open to adults.
