The HPL Book Club is a friendly group of library patrons and bibliophiles which has been meeting regularly for over ten years. We average 15-20 members each meeting and are always happy to see new faces! Our meetings are held on the last Tuesday of every month at 7pm, and we alternate between fiction and non-fiction titles -- suggestions always welcome! Whether you're someone who wants to meet regularly or just pop in when a title piques your interest, you'll always be welcome in the HPL Book Club.

Copies of the book will be available to pick up at the Reference desk beginning January 3rd.

This event will be held on Zoom. To join us, please register online, and we will email you the link shortly before the program.

About the Book:

A Children’s Bible follows a group of twelve eerily mature children on a forced vacation with their families at a sprawling lakeside mansion. Contemptuous of their parents, the children decide to run away when a destructive storm descends on the summer estate, embarking on a dangerous foray into the apocalyptic chaos outside. Lydia Millet’s prophetic and heartbreaking story of generational divide offers a haunting vision of what awaits us on the far side of Revelation.
