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.

The Kilbourn Public Library Book Discussion Group will be reading books by New York Times and USA Today bestselling novelist Joshilyn Jackson for the January book discussion.  Jackson writes page-turners that revolve around women's issues, faith and justice issues.  Jackson serves on the board of Reforming Arts, a nonprofit that runs education-in-prison and reentry programs.  Through this organization, Joshilyn has taught creative writing, composition, and literature inside Georgia's maximum security facility for women. 

Joshilyn is well known for writing fiction, contemporary, chick lit, romance, women’s fiction, mystery, Southern, suspense, psychological thriller, and adult fiction novels. All her books are standalone novels and have done very well throughout the United States and overseas. So far, Joshilyn has penned ten novels and all of them have been translated into over a dozen foreign languages. Joshilyn’s books have won many prestigious literary awards & prizes and have received nominations for numerous others.

We have copies of Joshilyn Jackson's books available at the library.  Pick up a copy and let us know which book you read and what you thought about it!
