Next Meeting - October 12th

An Image of The Great Alone, the next book in the BPL Book Group.

The Great Alone is a historical fiction novel. The story follows the Allbright family's move to the Alaskan wilderness and the ensuing challenges they face there. In this unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience, Kristin Hannah reveals the indomitable character of the modern American pioneer and the spirit of a vanishing Alaska―a place of incomparable beauty and danger. The Great Alone is a daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.
