The Afternoon Open Book Club will meet January 15th at 1 pm in the Story Garden to discuss Rinker Buck’s The Oregon Trail.
A major bestseller that has been hailed as a “quintessential American story” (Christian Science Monitor), Rinker Buck’s The Oregon Trail is an epic account of traveling the 2,000-mile length of the Oregon Trail the old-fashioned way—in a covered wagon with a team of mules—that has captivated readers, critics, and booksellers from coast to coast. Simultaneously a majestic journey across the West, a significant work of history, and a moving personal saga, Buck’s chronicle is a “laugh-out-loud masterpiece” (Willamette Week) that “so ensnares the emotions it becomes a tear-jerker at its close” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis) and “will leave you daydreaming and hungry to see this land” (The Boston Globe).
Books are available at the circulation desk. The Afternoon Open Book Club meets at the Library the third Wednesday of the month (September- June). Call the Library with questions at 315.655.9322.
