Ten lucky members of the South St. Paul Public Library Book Club will head to Mixed Blood soon for a performance of “The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity.”

The club was chosen randomly from our list of 167 registered book clubs.

Interestingly, another library-based book club — Webber Park, which meets at North Regional Library in North Minneapolis — won 10 vouchers in February for “Somebody/Nobody” at Mixed Blood.

The South St. Paul Library Book Club has two branches — a Wednesday afternoon group and a Thursday night group — and celebrated its 10th anniversary in January. The clubs meet monthly. Eighteen men and women participate.

Current and upcoming titles are posted on the library’s Facebook page, with additional info on the web page under Adult Book Discussions. 

According to librarian Kathy Halgren, “We read just about anything, nonfiction or fiction. I think the only genres we haven’t read would be western or horror. We especially enjoy books that introduce us to other cultures.”

Recent reads include “A Hard Ticket Home” by David Housewright, “Snow in August” by Pete Hamill, “Water for Elephants” by Sara Gruen, “The Ten-Year Nap” by Meg Wolitzer and “The Attack” by Yasmina Khadra.

Heads-up to all registered book clubs: We have two intriguing prizes for April drawings.
