Idaho, by Emily Ruskovich, is this year’s selection. Meet the author on Monday, Nov. 5 at 7pm at Asotin County Library.
Beautifully written prose combined with a stunning page-turner. Told from multiple perspectives, Idaho intertwines an evocative story of one family with a beautiful homage to the physical landscape, resulting in a psychologically astute book that is a haunting observance of compassion and the triumphs of love.
Let us help support your book club by providing multiple copies of books and discussion questions!
We have collected a wide-range of discussable books in great condition and put them in a canvas bag available for book clubs to borrow. We’ve included a folder with discussion questions and information about the author to encourage conversation among club members.
There will be at least 5 copies of the book in each kit, but most have kits have 10 book copies. Some kits will include an audiobook too! There are currently 11 kits to choose from and we plan to add more.
