Jackson County Reads


Jackson County’s two public libraries have come together to launch our first county-wide read. Join your neighbors, read the same book starting August 1 through September 17. Black River Falls Public Library and Taylor Memorial Library are collaborating to bring members of our community together to read and discuss the same literary work.

The 2015 Jackson County Reads selection is Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger. In the novel, told from his adult perspective, Frank weaves the story of his summer in southern Minnesota where he is trying to understand the world around him that seems to be falling apart. During this journey he discovers the terrible price of wisdom and insight into the enduring grace of God.

Book discussion groups throughout the county are being planned for August and September 2015.  Other events will be offered, including an author visit by William Kent Krueger on September 17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lunda Center in Black River Falls. All are welcome to attend this free event.

Stop at your library to put a copy of Ordinary Grace on hold. Books may also be purchased for $10 at both libraries. Call Tammy at 715-294-4112 or Julie at 715-662-2310 for more information.
