General Book Club
Monday December 13 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join the General Book Club when we discuss the historical novel Play for a Kingdom by Thomas Dyja.
The 20 remaining men of Company L, 14th Brooklyn regiment, have only 18 days remaining in their three-year enlistments. As they are pulling out, they discover a field, unscathed by war, on which they begin to play baseball. Suddenly, a group of Confederate soldiers emerges from the surrounding woods, holding rifles but declaring a truce. And so the Union and Confederate soldiers who have met before and who will meet again on Civil War battlefields begin a series of baseball games.
Copies of the December selection will be available at the library following the November 8 discussion. The eAudiobook is available for download through Hoopla.
This book club is free and intended for adults. No registration is required.
