Book club to meet at Brownstown library

The adult book club plans to discuss “Hog Trough Bride” by Ramona K. Cecil at 11 a.m. Friday at the Brownstown Public Library, 120 E. Spring St.

The book follows nine women of the late 1800s who have found themselves in the role of matchmaker. They think they have mastered the art of recognizing romantic potential in others, but when it comes to their own lives, they have been unlucky in love. In small communities from Wyoming to Indiana, love unexpectedly enters the women’s lives with men they never imagined marrying. But what will it take to get these ladies to say “I do?”

The club provides an informal and congenial atmosphere for library patrons 18 and older to share their literary interpretations of the current book selection. Everyone should read the month’s selection before the meeting. 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 selection are available one month in advance at the library circulation desk.

Registration for this free program, led by Karen Raymer, is required. Call 812-358-2853.
