First Wednesday Book Discussion
Callaway County Public Library

In keeping with Summer Reading's hero theme, bring your lunch and join us for a discussion of "The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid" by Bill Bryson. The author shares his memories of growing up in the 1950s, including his rich fantasy life as a superhero. He ran around his house and neighborhood vanquishing evildoers in an old football jersey with a thunderbolt on it and a towel around his neck for a cape.

First Thursday Book Discussion
Columbia Public Library, Friends Room

Bring a brown bag lunch and join us to discuss “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail” by Cheryl Strayed. After her mother’s death and the failure of her marriage, the author felt she had lost everything. Desperate and hurting, she decided to solo-hike the Pacific Crest Trail—more than a thousand miles from California to Washington—though she had no hiking experience or training. Despite seemingly insurmountable setbacks, Strayed completed her journey and found healing along the way.
