Happy Hour Book Group
Member Event Community Event Art Performances & Education Calendar
Decorah Public Library staff are hosting four book discussions in February. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book.
The Happy Hour Book Group will meet at Rubaiyat on Wed. Feb. 12th at 5:15 p.m. to discuss Jojo Moyes’ “The Giver of Stars.” Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve, hoping to escape her stifling life in England—but small-town Kentucky proves equally claustrophobic. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically. She is joined by four other singular women who become known as the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky.
