Louisa May Alcott; the Woman Behind Little Women by Harriet Reisen will be discussed at the October 6 meeting of the Pioneer Bookshop Bookclub. This biography addresses all aspects of Alcott's life taken from her journals and letters as well as recollections of family, friends and famous contemporaries.
Coming on November 10, author Scott Cawelti will join the club to discuss his book, Brother's Blood, a real-life crime drama recounting murders in Cedar Falls, Iowa in 1976. Described not as a "whodunit" but a "whydunit", the book describes the evidence in this Heartland Cain and Abel. The convicted murderer still claims to be innocent today. The book club will hold a special meeting and reception for Cawelti at 7pm at the Pioneer Bookshop, 823 Fourth Ave. in downtown Grinnell.
Our book club is always open to the public. Please join us for this special event on November 10, 2011.
