Book Club Meeting with Author Appearance in November 2011

On Thursday, November 10, 2011, Scott Cawelti, the author of Brother's Blood will be our guest at the Pioneer Bookshop Book Club meeting. We encourage anyone to attend to hear the author discuss his perspective on this nonfiction story about an infamous murder in Iowa's history. Whether you read the book or not, it proves to be an interesting discussion. Books are available for 25% off at the Pioneer Bookshop.


  1. I am not very far into the book but am hooked. I will be interested to talk to Cawelti at our meeting about how he decided when to embellish fact with fiction. He clearly did a ton of research.

  2. I agree Sarah. I want to know how he decided about the dialog in the head of the accused. Since he still maintains his innocence, I'm sure he didn't actually speak these words. Or did he?
