The KELOLAND Living Book Club is back with the first book pick of 2020. Siouxland Libraries, Jane Taylor shares why it is so valuable to discuss books as you read them along with telling us a little bit about our first book pick.

Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth by journalist Sarah Smarsh is a cultural commentary and social analysis of what it looks like to grow up amongst the working poor in the Midwest. This personal account brings insight to the adversity often faced in rural America and examines a cycle of believing those who earn less, are less themselves.

This book is available at Siouxland Libraries and also by digital download as an e book or audio book. You can also find this book at your local book store.

We will be posting KELOLAND Living Book Club questions and commentaries on our Facebook page. Please let us know if you are reading along with us and what your thoughts are on this book. We will wrap up this book in March, so you have two months to get reading!
