Book Club: A River Runs Through It
October 1, 2019

Join us!  The Book Club will meet on the first Saturday of the month at 9:00 a.m. in the meeting room at the Library. These books were chosen at the group’s meeting in August 2018. For more information, call Tiffany McNeil at 970/249-9656 (ext. 3).

The selection for January 2020 is A River Runs Through It by Norman MacLean. Presented by Tim Garvey.
From its first magnificent sentence, “In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing,” to the last, “I am haunted by waters,” A River Runs Through It is an American classic. Based on Norman Maclean’s childhood experiences, A River Runs Through It has established itself as one of the most moving stories of our time; it captivates readers with vivid descriptions of life along Montana’s Big Blackfoot River and its near magical blend of fly fishing with the troubling affections of the heart. Norman Maclean (1902-90), woodsman, scholar, teacher, and storyteller, grew up in the Western Rocky Mountains of Montana and worked for many years in logging camps and for the United States Forestry Service before beginning his academic career. He retired from the University of Chicago in 1973.  –
