Tower Room

A live, lively librarian-led book club discussion about a wide range of titles and genres. Register here for DAYTIME IN PERSON or on Wednesday, November 15, for EVENING ZOOM! Registration required.

ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB

If you like everything bagels, you'll probably like The Everything Book Club. We read the best of fiction and non-fiction, literary novels, mysteries, historical fiction, memoirs and more.

We generally meet on the third week of the month at two convenient times and venues:  Evening Zoom on Thursday at 7 p.m. and Daytime in Person at 1 p.m. (outside in the Avis Campbell Gardens behind the Library, weather permitting, or the Tower Room on the 2nd floor). Registration is required.

ABOUT THE BOOK

A wickedly funny ghost story, a tale of passion, of a complex marriage, and of a Native American bookstore, set against the backdrop of Covid and the death of George Floyd.

Click on the links to order the book  in print, eBook or audioBook (Libby/Overdrive), or ask for a copy at the circulation desk at the Main Branch.

Birchbark Books, a small independent bookstore in Minneapolis that actually happens to be owned by Louise Erdrich, is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by the store's most annoying customer. Flora dies on All Souls' Day, but she simply won't leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration that she survived by reading with murderous attention, must solve the mystery of this haunting while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation, and furious reckoning with race.

"Dazzling. . . . A hard-won love letter to readers and to booksellers, as well as a compelling story about how we cope with pain and fear, injustice and illness. One good way is to press a beloved book into another's hands. Read "The Sentence" and then do just that."—USA Today, four stars

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Louise Erdrich, a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa, is the author of many novels as well as volumes of poetry, children’s books, and a memoir of early motherhood. Her novel "The Round House" won the National Book Award for Fiction. Love Medicine and LaRose received the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction. Erdrich lives in Minnesota with her daughters and is the owner of Birchbark Books, a small independent bookstore. Her last book, "The Night Watchman," won the Pulitzer Prize. She believes that a ghost lives in her creaky old house.
