Book Club: "Beartown" by Fredrik Backman

Adults Join us for the monthly book club at our Rothschild Branch in November when we discuss Backman's 2017 novel!

Beartown is a town just about to be condemned to insignificance. It's economy has been stagnant for years and people are slowly leaving for better opportunities outside. It has one more chance to redeem itself though. It's junior hockey team has made it to the semifinals. Victory for the team means more jobs and economic opportunities for the town. But Kevin, its 17-year-old star player is being blamed for the assault on a 15-year-old girl who happens to be the daughter of the team's general manager. Victory is at stake, and so is the whole town's future. Can the town go beyond its mob thinking and sports fanaticism to deal with the crisis?

We're always looking for new attendees, so feel free to read the book and join us! Free and open to all adults, no registration required. Call 715-359-6208 for more information.
