By Steven S.

Are you inspired by real-life stories or nonfiction? Do you enjoy meeting with a group to talk about a book? This is a book group that is forming at EVPL West, on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:00 pm, that has a mission to learn from various writers and others in a group on a wide variety of topics.

The Keeping it REAL Book Group is reading books covering subjects in science, society, entrepreneurship, faith, and those who tell about the ups and downs of life. We’ll cover real-life topics that intersect the home, faith, parenting, adulthood, adventurers and the quirks life brings as we learn together. 

We are starting up this spring with three selections.   

Book selections

Due to the historic nature of the EVPL East, West, and Stringtown buildings their meeting rooms are not fully ADA accessible. If you are interested in participating in a program that is not accessible, please contact that location to arrange alternate accommodations.
