Beartown Book Cover2Tues LogoCome talk books with other bibliophiles! This book group will meet the second Tuesday of the month. Limited copies of the current selection will be available at the Reference Desk. Registration not required. This month, we're reading Beartown by Fredrik Backman. 

"People say Beartown is finished. It is slowly losing ground to the ever encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected."
