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.

For June the Kilbourn Public Library Book Club will be reading The Death of the Phoenix, the first volume in Ernest Meeder's Spirit of the Shark trilogy. 

In the East Indies during and after the Japanese occupation of the islands, a five-year-old boy named Kees journeys through the brutal world of the occupation and escapes into a new and civilized world.  When that new world proves to be as broken as the one he had fled, Kees grows discouraged.  With the help of some unexpected people, he learns to see the world from the perspectives of different cultures and religions. 

Join the discussion on this interesting book.  
Let us know what you think of  The Death of the Phoenix.
