Pearl S. Buck

Each year the Windsor Locks Public Library's Author Book Club will focus on one significant author, reading 5 novels and discussing biographical details and their development as a writer. Pearl Buck is the selection for 2018-2019.

This book club is unique in that members have a choice of meeting in the afternoon at 2:00 p.m. or in the evening at 6:30 p.m. on the 3rd Tuesday of alternating months.

Please call 860-627-1495 a month before the meeting for a copy of the upcoming novel. Copies will be available for anyone that requests them. You may join us for all or occasional meetings. If you don't have an opportunity to read the current novel but are interested in attending the discussion, please feel free. Everyone is welcome!
