THIS MONTH, THE CLASSIC NOVELS BOOK CLUB WILL BE MEETING AT COMMON GROUNDS (5159 6th Ave, Kenosha) TO ACCOMMODATE THE SETUP OF THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY BOOK SALE THIS WEEKEND.
What defines a classic novel? Is it time, quality, or that indefinable something that makes us want to read a book over and over? Read something you consider classic and we'll discuss what makes a book special and which ones to add to our bucket lists. Led by historian and reference assistant Cathy Polovina.
