Coralville Public Library
Novel Conversations is a book group that alternates between classic novels and more recent works of fiction and nonfiction. Participants are welcome to come to all the meetings or just those that sound interesting. Multiple copies of each book are available for checkout in the library and are, whenever possible, made available in large print, audiobook, and ebook editions.
Novel Conversations meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm on Zoom. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
In May we are discussing:Shoeless Joe by W. P. Kinsella
Made famous by the film Field of Dreams, Kinsella’s story took root while attending the University of Iowa’s Writer’s Workshop. The NY Times wrote in 1982: “Mr. Kinsella is drunk on complementary elixirs, literature and baseball, and the cocktail he mixes of the two is a lyrical, seductive, and altogether winning concoction. It’s a love story.”
