Traditionally, participation in the various book clubs put on by the Door County Library system branches ebbed and flowed with the number of seasonal residents. With the talks going virtual on Zoom as a precaution against COVID-19, Community Relations Library Assistant Morgan Mann says people are finding ways to join the discussion, no matter where they are.
Each club has a different focus. Some gravitate towards military history, nonfiction, or the classics. The Ephraim Book Club was the last group to reconvene since the onset of the pandemic. Its first discussion will be Tuesday, October 6th, at 11 AM before settling into its usual timeslot of 10:30 on the first Tuesday morning each month. More information can be found on the library’s website.
Door County Reads will be virtual in 2021, with all activities taking place over two weeks at the end of January. While many details are not yet finalized, the book has been picked. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel is set in the Midwest, and the plot revolves around the aftermath of a devastating pandemic.
