Friday Book Group: “Life on the Mississippi”
Decorah Public Library staff are hosting six book discussions in May. The groups are open to the public and newcomers are encouraged to attend. Anyone interested should call the library at 382-3717 to learn more or to reserve a book. Zoom links are available on the Library’s website or you can email email@example.com to be added to any of the groups’ email distribution lists. Funds for multiple copy sets were generously provided by Friends of Decorah Public Library.
The Friday Book Group will meet via Zoom Fri. May 19 at 2:00 p.m. to discuss Rinker Buck’s “Life on the Mississippi.” “Life on the Mississippi” is a blend of history and adventure in which Buck builds a wooden flatboat from the grand “flatboat era” of the early 1800s and sails it down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. Over the course of his voyage, Buck steers his fragile craft through channels dominated by cargo barges, rescues his first mate gone overboard, sails blindly through fog, breaks his ribs not once but twice, and camps every night on sandbars, remote islands, and steep levees. As he charts his own journey, he also brings to life a lost era
