Looking for a fun way to talk about books and meet new people? Join Collingswood Reads, The Collingswood Library’s very own book club!
Collingswood Reads comes together once a month, typically the fourth Wednesday of the month, from 7 to 8 PM. Adults and teens gather to discuss the book pick of the month, meet neighbors and enjoy snacks.
In March, the book club will read The Great Alone by author Kristin Hannah.
The Great Alone takes place in Alaska circa 1974. Ernt Allbright, a Vietnam Vet, is deeply affected by the war. Ernt moves his family to rural Alaska to turn over a new leaf. Ernt, along with his wife Cora and teenage daughter Leni, learn how to cope with his declining mental health and the onslaught of Alaska’s harsh winter conditions. Drawing support from the tight-knit community which the Allbrights moved to, the family survives the winter. Still, Ernt’s recovery from the trauma of war endures.
Collingswood Reads Book Club will meet on March 25, 2020, to discuss The Great Alone.
