    Name: CADL Book Club
    Date: January 9, 2019
    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Join in the community discussion of bestselling author Fredrik Backman's novel Beartown on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.

    Summary: People say Beartown is finished. A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever-encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected.

    The adult book club meets every month on the 2nd Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
