Book of the Month
"The Sentence" by Louise Erdrich

Adults Drop-in

Stop by our Athens Branch in November to pick up their Book-of-the-Month selection, along with some questions and comments to get you thinking about the novel!

In The Sentence, a small independent bookstore in Minneapolis is haunted by the store's most annoying customer, Flora. Flora passed away on All Souls' Day 2019, but simply won't leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job at the store after years of incarceration, must solve the mystery of this haunting while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis throughout 2020 - a year of grief, astonishment, isolation, and furious reckoning.

The Book-of-the-Month Club is free and open to the public, with no registration required. Interested in the questions but can't make it to Athens? Let us know and we can send you a copy. Call the Athens Branch at 715-257-7292 for more information.
