Join us on a Book It! Adventure provided by the Granville Public Library.
Book It! Adventure 2011 honors the 150th anniversary of the Civil War with a powerful book and a remarkable trip!
What is a Book It! Adventure? It’s a book club on wheels! Each year we bring a book to life by hitting the road and visiting a place relevant to what we read.
The 2011 book selection is Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Team of Rivals is a critically acclaimed best-selling multiple biography that explores the unique relationship between Abraham Lincoln and his presidential cabinet.
To compliment our book discussion, we will travel to the Land of Lincoln–Springfield, Illinois–on The Fun Bus and tour the highly anticipated Team of Rivals exhibit at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library as well as visit other Lincoln landmarks. Click here to view Goodwin’s personal invitation to the exhibit.
Copies of Team of Rivals will be available at the Front Desk beginning September 30th. Participants will then meet at the Library on Thursday, May 19th, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. for book discussion circles and dessert bar provided by Faire La Cuisine.
The trip runs June 13th-15th, 2011 and cost includes transportation, 2 nights hotel stay, 7 meals and all admission charges. And did we mention that fun, fun, fun is included too!!
