Drake Community Library
Bookin’ It @ the Drake, a bi-monthly book discussion that meets at Drake Community Library will hold its next meeting on Thursday, September 8th at 7 p.m. The selection to be discussed is “The Giver of Stars” by Jojo Moyes, the author of “Me Before You”.
The novel is based on the true story of the Pack Horse Library Project established by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s to bring books to rural locations. “The Giver of Stars” delves into the love of all kinds: reading, knowledge, friendship, and the beauty of rural Kentucky. All of these come together to give the characters the grit they need to overcome obstacles and difficult conditions.
Book discussions are held on the second Thursday every other month. The title chosen for November 10th is “A Gentlemen in Moscow” by Amor Towles. It’s a clever, surprisingly upbeat story that is a great mix of historical fiction, romance, espionage, and politics. New readers are always welcome to Bookin’ It @ the Drake. Questions? Call Rachel Romero or Lucy Chang at 641-236-2661.
