Reader's Circle Book Club

Reader's Circle is a library-sponsored book club meeting on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 6:30 p.m. Open to all adult readers, we read one book per month, feature a variety of adult fiction, and sometimes include a biography that reads like narrative fiction. The book club meetings are about one hour. Author visits and special events may be scheduled. Contact Info: Linda Engelke @ (909) 477-2720, x3963

Nearly 25 years after Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson returns with an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart. In the words of Kirkus, it is a novel "as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering." Gilead tells the story of America and will break your heart.
