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.

In May the library book club is reading Cecelia Ahern's There's No Place Like Here, the story of Sandy Shortt, a missing persons investigator who is also a little obsessive compulsive.  This imaginative novel encourages the reader to step outside of traditional plot lines and enter a world made up of missing people and possessions that have come together from all over the globe to start fresh.

One online reviewer says of this book, "There's No Place Like Here is unlike any book I have ever read.  Author Cecilia Ahern is a master storyteller, pulling readers in and not letting them go until they reach the conculsion of this amazing tale of yearning, loss and hope."

Let us know what you think of There's No Place Like Here.
