Lunch & a Book

The library's lunchtime book discussion group started in September 1998. Books include works of fiction and nonfiction, classics and contemporary novels. We meet on the second Thursday of the month from Noon to 1:00 PM. The December meeting is used to share favorite titles and make suggestions for the coming year.

Lunch and a Book January 2015

Join us Thursday, January 8 at noon as we discuss:

Bootstrapper: from broke to badass on a northern Michigan farm by Mardi Jo Link ?? It's the summer of 2005, and Mardi Jo Link's dream of living the simple life has unraveled into debt and heartbreak. She and her husband of nineteen years have just called it quits, leaving her with serious cash-flow problems and a looming divorce. Link makes a seemingly impossible resolution: to hang on to her century-old farmhouse in northern Michigan and continue to raise her three boys on well water and wood chopping and dirt. Armed with an unfailing sense of humor and three resolute accomplices, Link confronts blizzards and foxes, learns about Zen divorce and the best way to butcher a hog, dominates a zucchini-growing contest and wins a year's supply of local bread, masters the art of bargain cooking, wrangles rampaging poultry, and withstands any blow to her pride in order to preserve the life she wants.
