winter-bloomThe Alma Book Club is reading Winter Bloom by Tara Heavey. You are welcome to join them here at the Library to discuss the novel, and other books you may be reading.
who:     Alma Book Club meeting
where: Alma Public Library, 312 N Main, Alma WI
when:   Wednesday, Oct 19th, 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

“The Alma Book Club has been in existence for seventeen years.  It was started with a grant for Healthy Communities. The grant was written by Lois Balk. This book club has been one of the high points of my life. It lets me share all the good books I read with other readers. What a wonderful way to learn.”

“The Book Club is great. Never did much reading before I started going to the Club. In the winter nothing is better; to curl up with a book. I read a lot more now – so many things you can’t do at an older age, so reading is fun!”

From Booklist magazine: Winter Bloom. In the heart of Dublin, there exists a dilapidated, acre-wide, walled garden that hasn’t been touched for years. When Eva, a recently widowed teacher and mother of four-year-old Liam, happens upon the garden, she instantly feels a strong desire to rebuild it into an urban green space. The garden has an unexpected effect on Eva’s life, bringing together a motley crew of unlikely Dubliners who rebuild it, all dealing with their own special kind of grief…..
