April 2017 Book Group

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Author: June Melby

Librarian Vanessa will lead this month's book discussion of My Family and Other Hazards by June Melby. In this memoir, Melby retells stories about her childhood spent helping to run her family's business: the Tom Thumb miniature golf course on the Chain O' Lakes. "Told in eighteen chapters, with a chapter for every hole on the course and a theme to match each hole's colorful hazards, My Family and Other Hazards is a hilarious and touching story about putters and tourists, angst, cotton candy, windmills and frogs, carefully avoiding death by sno-cone, one castle, two clowns, and letting go of your childhood." (from the publisher)

The Scandinavia Public Library chooses a book monthly (except for December) to read and discuss as a group on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 4 p.m. Selections vary widely and readers are welcome to participate as frequently as they choose.
