Book Club - Saturday, April 20 - 10:00am

This Saturday we turn back the calendar to 1843 to experience London in December with Charles Dickens struggling to come up with a book to satisfy his publishers and reading audience. And before the warm weather is here to stay we are asked to feel snowflakes on our faces once again as we consider Samantha Silva's touching tale about the creative process behind A Christmas Carol.

 

Book Club - April 20th

On April 20 the Riverton Area Book Club will look into the creative mind of Charles Dickens as he struggled with overcoming writer's block. In her debut novel Mr. Dickens and His Carol, author Samantha Silva uses humor, imagination, and historical detail to create a story about Dickens and the muse he needed when he was almost bankrupt and his publishers were demanding a new literary work. (For those of you who saw the 2017 movie "The Man Who Invented Christmas" this will be a familiar topic.) .

Meet Your Candidate

The Riverton Village Library Trustees will host a Meet Your Candidate night on Wednesday, March 13 at 7pm in the Village community room. Candidates from the Village of Riverton, Lincoln Land Community College and the Riverton School Board will be present. The event moderator, Jim Leach, will take questions from the audience for the school board. Please join us for this informative evening.

Book Club - March 16, 2019

The March 16 selection for the Riverton Area Book Club is the best-selling book Before We Were Yours, by Lisa Wingate. Inspired by true history, the author dramatizes the plight of young children who were stolen from their homes in the 1920-1950s and sold to well-paying families.

Book Club - February 16th

On February 16 the Riverton Area Book Club will meet to discuss Charlotte's Web.  This children's story, which is also enjoyed by adults, was written by American author E.B. White in 1952 and is the story of Wilbur (a pig) and a barnyard spider named Charlotte. Various themes are presented in this book such as life and death, innocence, and growing up.

 


The book club meets from 10am to 11am at the Riverton Village Library. Some books have been ordered through interlibrary loan. If you need a copy please contact the library at 217-629-6353.
