Author: Daniel James Brown

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.

Book Clubs

The library hosts two book clubs.

  1. The afternoon club meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m. at the Kimberly Public Library.
  2. 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.
