On Feb. 27, the library will be holding a discussion about the book “Call of the Wild,” a novel about an adventurer in Alaska with his sled dogs and the race they are in, during sixth and seventh hours.
Unlike books in the past, this book was chosen in coordinance with the St. Charles County Library system’s “Big Read,” a community-wide book discussion.
“This is the first one St. Charles County Libraries have sponsored,” librarian Sheri Pogue said. “But the state has had [“Big Read”] for quite a while.”
While this book may not be as new as books from previous discussions, Pogue hopes that this particular book will draw in new faces to the discussion.
“This is a nice short book and because of this topic, I’m hoping more boys will participate,” Pogue said.
Another reason to come check out the book discussion, is that showing up means there is the possibility of walking away with a prize.
“When the county contacted me about this I was very happy to participate because they offered me free books which I’m going to use as incentive to get people to show up,” Pogue said.
