Books with Friends Book Club: Dandelion Wine

Join us for a special AM edition of our Book Club and some friendly conversation about Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury.

For a copy of the book, stop into the library starting one month prior to the event. Or, check Hoopla & Libby for a digital copy of the book.

*NOTE: Because this is a morning book discussion, there will be a volunteer Friend on-hand to watch over the Kid's Playroom for children of those in attendance. If you have any questions, please reach out to the library.**

About this month's selection:
"Ray Bradbury's moving recollection of a vanished golden era remains one of his most enchanting novels. Dandelion Wine stands out in the Bradbury literary canon as the author's most deeply personal work, a semi-autobiographical recollection of a magical small-town summer in 1928. Twelve-year-old Douglas Spaulding knows Green Town, Illinois, is as vast and deep as the whole wide world that lies beyond the city limits. It is a pair of brand-new tennis shoes, the first harvest of dandelions for Grandfather's renowned intoxicant, the distant clang of the trolley's bell on a hazy afternoon. It is yesteryear and tomorrow blended into an unforgettable always. But as young Douglas is about to discover, summer can be more than the repetition of established rituals whose mystical power holds time at bay. It can be a best friend moving away, a human time machine who can transport you back to the Civil War, or a sideshow automaton able to glimpse the bittersweet future. Come and savor Ray Bradbury's priceless distillation of all that is eternal about boyhood and summer."
