    Mudbound by Hillary Jordan
    Netflix made this haunting book into a film in 2017. Barbara Kingsolver called this debut novel "storytelling at the height of its powers." Join us for a discussion of this story of forbidden love, betrayal, and murder, set against the brutality of the Jim Crow South.

    July 25
    Columbine by Dave Cullen 
    We'll be discussing this remarkable nonfiction account of the school shooting that took place on April 20, 1999, by one of the first reporters on scene. Dave Cullen spent ten years on this book, which Entertainment Weekly notes "reads like the grisliest of fiction. Would that it were not true."    

    August 22
    News of the World by Paulette Jiles  
    In this National Book Award finalist, an aging itinerant news reader agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa back to her people in the aftermath of the Civil War. School Library Journal noted that this slim Western novel is both "brief and expansive."

    September 26
    Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal
    Hopefully we'll all agree with Amazon, BookPage, LibraryReads, and NPR, who named this one of the best books of the year when it came out in 2016. If you like food and family relationships, we think you'll like this novel, described by People magazine as a "sweet and savory treat."

    October 24
    The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
    Page Turners always picks a scary book for October, and this modern classic offers a different type of horror. The writing is sublime, and the story continues to engage readers (and now, with the television series viewers as well) over 30 years after it was first published.

    November 28
    Go Big ReadThe Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan
    Join us as we discuss UW-Madison's 2018-2019 Go Big Read pick described as "a portrait of an ecological catastrophe happening right before our eyes, blending the epic story of the lakes with an examination of the perils they face and the ways we can restore and preserve them for generations to come."

    December: no discussion, see you in January!
