Evening Book Club

Join community members in an evening of discussing the month’s book:

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

Our next meeting will be on  Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 6:30PM.

“In this unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience, Kristin Hannah reveals the indomitable character of the modern American pioneer and the spirit of a vanishing Alaska―a place of incomparable beauty and danger. The Great Alone is a daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.” (GoodReads)
