Crystal Community Library Book Club

Please join us to discuss "Running With Sherman" by Christopher McDougall and "Virgil Wander" by Leif Enger

The Crystal Community Library Book Club will discuss "Running With Sherman" by Christopher McDougall. This is a heartwarming story about training a rescue donkey to run one of the most challenging races in America, and, in the process, discovering the life-challenging power of the human-animal connection.


"Virgil Wander" by Leif Enger, a sweeping story of new beginnings against all odds that follows the inhabitants of a hard luck town in their quest to revive its flagging heart. Carried aloft by quotidian pleasures of kite-flying, movies, fishing, baseball, necking in parked cars and falling in love, Virgil Wander is a swift, full journey into the heart and heartache of an often overlooked upper Midwest.

This book discussion will be held at Noll Park, Monday, August 17, 2020 @ 6:30p.m.

All participants are asked to do 6 ft. social distancing and wear a face covering. Please call 989-235-6111 for more info.
