Country Bookshelf Book Club

Beginning in June 2020, our Country Bookshelf book club will meet on the fourth Monday of each month. The book club will be meeting virtually for the foreseeable future, and is open to all - we are always happy to see new faces! Please join us for some fun and interesting discussion about great books! 

The Summer of Lonesome Dove

Saddle up for the Summer of Lonesome Dove! We’re celebrating the life and writing of author Larry McMurtry and the 35th anniversary of the western classic Lonesome Dove all summer long with bookstores across the West. Join us for two Virtual Book Clubs on June 22nd and July 27th. We’ll be focusing on the first half of the book in June, and the second half in July. Because this is a reread for so many folks, we won’t be holding you to a specific page number and we won’t bridle your reading if you simply must keep going. We’d love for you to join us in discussing and celebrating Lonesome Dove

Author Larry McMurtry was recently honored with the Spirit of the West Literary Achievement Award from the Mountains and Plains Independent Booksellers Association. In his acceptance letter he writes

“I will continue to write about the West. In these precarious times, I trust that many will return to the world of books, for reading can be a solace, an escape, a respite, from an ever-changing universe.”

Stay tuned for information on how to join the conversation.
