Jan. 9

Books and beer discussion at Romeoville branch

The White Oak Library District will present “Books and Beer Book Discussion” at its Romeoville Branch Library at 201 W. Normantown Road. It meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7pm. The next meeting is January 9, 2018.

Have a snack and enjoy a beer while having a low-key book discussion. You must be at least 21 to participate. On January 9, we will be talking about The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt. It is a darkly funny, off-beat western about a reluctant assassin and his murderous brother.

Copies of the book will be available after December 6 at the Romeoville Branch Library’s Adult Services Desk.

Contact the Adult Services Desk at 815-552-4230 to register or for more information. You may also register online at www.whiteoaklibrary.org.
