A Hot Drink And A Good Book

November Book Discussion

Hotel_on_the_Corner_of_Bitter_and_Sweet_cover bitterroot Join us at the Libby library for A Hot Drink and a Good Book, our monthly book discussion group. This month we’re tackling two books at once. The first book Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford gives us a glimpse of the damage that is caused by war – not the sweeping damage of the battlefield, but the cold, cruel damage to the hearts and humanity of individual people.

The second book Bitterroot by James Lee Burke tells the story of old friends in distress. Texas lawyer Billy Bob Holland is called to the Bitterroot Valley in Montana to help an old friend who is attempting to mount a one-man campaign against a mining company out to defile the ravishingly beautiful country. Holland’s Texas past follows him to Montana, too, in the form of a sociopath with a grudge against the lawyer who sent his sister to prison. Copies of the book are available to check out at the library.

Copies of the book are available to check out at the library.


Please note:

Due dates for book discussion materials are final. If the book is more than 3 days overdue, the cost of the book may be charged to your account.  Books for discussion are lent to us from libraries around the state and are often in demand by another library immediately following our use. In order to deliver book discussion kits to libraries in a timely manner, missing books must be replaced immediately. This cost is charged by the library that owns and lends the kit to the library borrowing the kit.  Unfortunately, we cannot afford to absorb this cost.

We can always place a hold on a regular library copy of the book for you to check out and finish reading, if necessary.  Please contact the library at 293-2778 if you have any questions.  Thank you.
