Book Discussion Group is reading Blankets: by Craig Thompson for our February book.

“Wrapped in the landscape of a blustery Wisconsin winter, Blankets explores the sibling rivalry of two brothers growing up in the isolated country, and the budding romance of two coming-of-age lovers. A tale of security and discovery, of playfulness and tragedy, of a fall from grace and the origins of faith.

A profound and utterly beautiful work from Craig Thompson.”

We will be meeting Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. Stop in and pick up a copy to enjoy. Bring a friend; there will be free refreshments! FREE.
