The Ferndale Public Library and The Emory are proud to present The Ferndale Book Party.
This group, part of our numerous specialty-Book Clubs, meets every other month at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the books you've been reading! Don’t all the best conversations happen in bars, anyway??
'Book Parties' often cover a wide range of titles, from cutting edge innovators of Fiction to some of the tried and true classics that maybe some of us just haven't gotten around to, yet.
THIS MONTH, however, Book Parties is being taken over by our month-long Ferndale Reads event, spotlighting Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five.
This is it! This is the wrap up, we hope you were able to finish your copy (Circulation Staffers have been handing them out, free to own, all month long).
Our Ferndale Reads campaign kicked off in early February. (Catch up on the story HERE, via the Patch).
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut was this year’s Ferndale Reads book - which FPL encouraged everyone in Ferndale to read!
This year’s keynote speech will feature local Ferndale resident and author, Gregory Sumner. His recent publication, Unstuck in Time is a journey through Kurt Vonnegut’s life and work. Sumner will speak about Slaughterhouse-five’s popularity and sign copies of his book.
Book Parties, continuing every other month, are perfectly spaced for busy people and low-key enough for even the most casual reader to feel comfortable attending.
Free appetizers are also included!
