“The Shop” & “Trevor”

Quick Bites – Short media discussed over lunch hour

Decorah Public Library staff are hosting eight book discussions in July. 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 ktorresdal@decorahlibrary.org 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.

Quick Bites will meet in a hybrid format on Tuesday, July 26 at 12:15 for a discussion of Anthony Veasna So’s short story “The Shop” and Ocean Vuong’s poem “Trevor.” In-person attendees will meet in the lower-level meeting room and digital attendees will join via Zoom. “The Shop” tells the story of the cast of Cambodian immigrants and refugees that find themselves working at Toby’s dad’s auto shop in California and the extent to which Toby is willing to go for his family and the American dream. “Trevor” is about the confusing, intense, unlikely love between two teens. Links to materials are available on the library’s website.
