Welcome to the KPL Book Club Blogspot

Welcome to the internet home of the Kilbourn Public Library (KPL) Book Club. The KPL Book Club meets at the library once a month. A book is chosen for each month and then members of the book club meet the last Monday and Wednesday of every month for lively discussion and treats. While we can’t offer you treats via the internet, this KPL Reads blog was designed for those of you who would like to participate in the book club but don’t have time to join us at meetings. Each month KPL staff will post discussion topics and questions to get you “talking”. Join in the discussion by adding a post to the blog. Click on the word comments below the post you want to "talk" about and write your comment. Be sure to check back often to see feedback and comments.

This month the library book club is reading The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, a book Wikipedia calls "a psychological horror novel". It is October after all! This novel is written by Stephen King, the man known internationally for his contemporary horror fiction books and screenplays.

King has crafted a story about a young girl who gets lost in the woods where her only link to the outside world is her radio and her love of the Boston Red Sox. This book will hold you captivated until the end.

Was there a particulary striking scene in the book? Were the characters believable? If you have read other Stephen King books how do you think this one compares to some of his other books? Let us know what you think!
