Library book club starts Thursday

By TRAVIS WEIK - tweik@thecouriertimes.com

A lot of people visiting the New Castle-Henry County Public Library have been asking librarian Krystal Stanich to host a book club.

Stanich is excited to announce that the first meeting of the Rose City Book Club is just days away.

Stanich will have a list of questions to help lead discussions. Mostly, though, she’s just looking forward to seeing how people react to that month’s selection.

The Rose City Book Club will meet at different locations around the community, as well, Stanich said.

The first three meetings will start at 6 p.m. at Primo, 1326 Broad St., New Castle. The New Castle-Henry County Public Library will purchase an appetizer for book club participants, Stanich said.

On Thursday, June 14, the Rose City Book Club will meet and discuss “Code Name Verity” by Elizabeth Wein. This story is set in World War II and follows two friends: a pilot and a spy.

“It’s a very intense book,” Stanich said. “It’s the one book that I recommend everyone read.”

Readers will talk about “The Jane Austen Book Club” by Karen Joy Fowler on July 12.

The following month, on Aug. 9, the Rose City Book Club will look at “The Inn at Rose Harbor” by Debbie Macomber.

After August, Stanich plans to move the book club meeting locations around to different spots so readers can enjoy new locations with their new book-of-the-month.

The book club series is part of the library’s adult programming. Stanich will consider starting a teen-oriented book club if she has enough interest from the young adults in the Teen ‘Scape.

There is no charge to take part in the Rose City Book Club. However, registration is required so Stanich has an idea of how many people to expect.

Rose City readers can register through the library website (www.nchcpl.org) or by contacting Krystal Stanich directly at (765) 575-4557 or krystals@nchcpl.lib.in.us.
