Carmel Public Library Foundation
Invites YOU to join our book club!

It’s election year and we have acclaimed American historian Douglas Brinkley as our featured guest speaker for our annual fundraiser, The PRESIDENTIAL Edition!

His most recent book is: American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race

The Carmel Public Library Foundation’s book club is for the entire region, cultivating a culture of reading and discussion by bringing people together around interesting and meaningful works of literature.

Ways To Participate:

  • Read the book as an individual
  • Start a book club
  • Suggest the book to your current book club
  • Join CPLF book club by emailing: afallon@carmelpubliclibraryfoundation.org – You will then receive periodic emails engaging you in thought and leading up to an invitation to meet at the Harrison Memorial Library on April 2nd at 6:30pm to discuss the book (max 35 – registration required).
