Book club for adults to meet at Brownstown library

The Brownstown Public Library Adult Book Club will meet at 11 a.m. Nov. 4 to discuss “Night of Miracles” by Elizabeth Berg at the library, 120 E. Spring St. Brownstown.

Lucille Howard is getting on in years, but she stays busy. Thanks to the inspiration of her dearly departed friend, Arthur Truluv, she has begun to teach baking classes, sharing the secrets to her delicious classic southern yellow cake, the perfect pinwheel cookies and other sweet essentials.

Her classes have become so popular that she has hired Iris, a new resident of Mason, Missouri, as an assistant. Iris doesn’t know how to bake, but she needs to keep her mind off of a big decision she sorely regrets.

When a new family moves in next door and tragedy strikes, Lucille begins to look out for Lincoln, their son. Lincoln’s parents aren’t the only ones in town facing hard choices and uncertain futures. In these difficult times, the residents of Mason come together and find the true power of community — just when they need it the most.

The club is for patrons 18 and older to share their literary interpretations of the current book selection. Everyone should read the month’s selection before the meeting, but feel free to attend even if you haven’t finished the book as long as you don’t mind hearing how it ends. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the discussion, but listeners are welcome.

Light refreshments are served by individuals from the group on a volunteer basis. Extra copies of the book are available one month in advance at the circulation desk.

Registration is requested and may be done at the circulation desk or by calling the library at 812-358-2853.

Karen Raymer facilitates the program.
