MCPL launching Digital Classics Book Club

BABBIT book cover

April 5, 2013

See classic literature in a new light by getting some Tolkien on your tablet, some digital Dickens or a little Kafka on your Kindle, with the Marathon County Public Library’s new Digital Classics Book Club.

Each month, the group picks a new classic available free and without wait through the library’s Overdrive system here and here. Instead of a monthly gathering, members post their thoughts on MCPL’s Goodreads page (also free) as the pages turn. Need a hand getting started? Call or stop by the Wausau Headquarters' reference desk any time.

The club begins in May with "Babbitt," Sinclair Lewis' scathing critique of the American Dream, told through the eyes of his disillusioned protagonist, George F. Babbitt.

(Still prefer books in print? You're still welcome in the classics club, and we have other clubs at each MCPL location. Or, talk to us about starting your own!)
