Common Readers to discuss "Lonesome Dove"

Join the Common Readers Book Discussion Group in August to read the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Lonesome Dove.

Larry McMurtry’s Western epic takes place in the dusty little Texas town of Lonesome Dove and features an unforgettable assortment of heroes and outlaws, prostitutes and ladies, Indians and settlers. “Richly authentic, beautifully written, always dramatic, Lonesome Dove is a book to make us laugh, weep, dream, and remember.”

Copies of the book are available for checkout at the library in regular print. The book is also available as an ebook and digital audiobook on Libby.

The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the big gazebo at Stepping Stones on Tuesday, August 17.

The Common Readers Book Discussion Group meets at 6:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of every month. Readers can join the group for one, several, or every meeting. The remaining 2021 schedule is as follows: Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry (August 17); The Overstory by Richard Powers (September 21); Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury (October 19); and The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden (November 16). There is no meeting in December. The title for each month will be available at the Upper Sandusky Community Library in a variety of formats.
