Community Book Club: Becoming @ Whistler Public Library

Whistler Public Library and Armchair Books have joined forces to start a Community Book Club! Free and open to all, the club meets on the last Wednesday of each month. We read something for everyone: throughout the year, we’ll explore different genres and read books by authors with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Our choices might make you laugh, cry, or challenge a long-held belief, but whether you love or hate the book, we promise a lively, thought-provoking discussion. It might sound obvious, but we highly recommend you read the book to effectively engage in the conversation!

When: Wednesday, January 29, 7 p.m.
Where: Fireplace Lounge, Whistler Public Library
Who: Everyone welcome, no registration required
How much: Free
Which book: Becoming by Michelle Obama
Where to get a copy: Borrow at WPL or buy at Armchair Books (mention the book club and receive 15% off)

Synopsis: In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her – from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it – in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations – and whose story inspires us to do the same.
