Library to host new seasonal book club

DeKALB – The DeKalb Public Library’s new All About Books book club will meet one Saturday a month from January through May. 

All About Books will feature books, fiction and nonfiction, about books and reading. This short-term book discussion group will kick off at 2 p.m. Saturday when “History of the Rain,” a novel by Niall Williams, will be discussed.

In a small Irish village, Ruthie Swain lies bed-bound with a mysterious illness. Lying in her boat-shaped bed in the attic of her family’s home, she is surrounded by her deceased father’s books. By reading his books, Ruthie hopes to uncover her father’s tortured life and write her family’s story.

Everyone is welcome to attend, and registration is not required. Copies of the book are available in the Adult Services department. The programs will be in the lower-level Bilder Family Meeting Room.
