History Reads Book Club: Danelion Wine

Tue May 1 19:00:00 2018

All avid readers are welcome to join us on Tuesday, May 1 at the McLean County Museum of History for the second History Reads Book Club of 2018. The discussion will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Governor Fifer Courtroom. Ring in the spring season with a reading of famed author Ray Bradbury’s 1957 novel Dandelion Wine. Set in the summer of 1928, Bradbury’s book tells the tale of 12-year-old Douglas Spalding and his childhood in Green Town, Illinois—loosely based on the author’s hometown of Waukegan.

This free, quarterly program is brought to you by the Museum and Bloomington Public Library. The discussion will last approximately 60 minutes. Participants are welcome to explore the Museum before the meeting. Free parking is available on the street or in the Lincoln Parking Deck, located one block south of the Museum on Front Street.

Copies of this book will be available for checkout at Bloomington Public Library or may be requested via interlibrary loan through your local public library. For more information on this program please contact the Museum’s Education Department by email at education@mchistory.org or by phone at 309-827-0428; or contact Karen Moen at Bloomington Public Library at reference@bloomingtonlibrary.org. The Museum looks forward to seeing our local literature lovers in May!
