Evening Book Discussion Group

April‘s Wednesday evening discussion book is Bus Stop: a play by William Inge

From Goodreads:

“‘In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and four or five weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning. Cherie, a nightclub chanteuse in a sparkling gown and a seedy fur-trimmed jacket, is the passenger with most to worry about. She’s been pursued, made love to and finally kidnapped by a twenty-one-year-old cowboy with a ranch of his own and the romantic methods of an unusually headstrong bull. The belligerent cowhand is right behind her, ready to sling her over his shoulder and carry her, alive and kicking, all the way to Montana. Even as she’s ducking out from under his clumsy but confident embraces, and screeching at him fiercely to shut him up, she pauses to furrow her forehead and muse, “Somehow deep inside of me I got a funny feeling I’m gonna end up in Montana ” As a counterpoint to the main romance, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver at last find time to develop a friendship of their own; a middle-age scholar comes to terms with himself; and a young girl who works in the cafe also gets her first taste of romance.”

The Library offers two monthly book discussion groups. The evening group meets at 7:00 pm on the second Wednesday of each month. Our meetings are very informal and a lot of fun. There are plenty of laughs to go along with the discussion, and a variety of opinions on the latest book we’ve read. Both groups are open to all adults, and the library can obtain a copy of the book selection for all interested participants. We love newcomers — join us!
