Manitowoc Public Library’s online book discussion for adults is back in May and focusing on the following title: “Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee,” by Casey Cep—the stunning story of an Alabama serial killer and the true-crime book that Harper Lee worked on obsessively in the years following To Kill a Mockingbird. The discussion will convene via Zoom on Tuesday, May 18, at 11:00 AM. Registration is required and opens on Saturday, March 1, at 9:00 AM on the “Events” calendar at www.manitowoclibrary.org. Only ten spots will be available (with a Waiting List should people decide not to participate)! Place a hold on the book, pick it up in-library or Curbside, or check into an e-reader version. We’re looking forward to seeing you on Zoom! You will be sent the link for the Zoom meeting, along with the discussion questions prior to May 18. Any questions, please contact Therese at thorstketter@manitowoc.org or call 920-686-3044. Time to get back to talking books!
