Books Again Book Club Starts in January 2022
Martha Drake, a Books Again volunteer, who has guided a book club at the Pueblo West Library since 2007, has agreed to start a book club at Books Again.
Here are the details:
Books Again is starting a book club in January of 2022. The club will now meet on the third Thursday of each month at 9 a.m. at the store. Books for the first six months have been selected. Continuation of the book club past June will be determined based on interest. If continued, the members will select the books for the remainder of the year.
The books are both fiction and nonfiction covering a variety of topics. Political, religious, romance, and books in a series will not be considered. Typical length is between 300-400 pages. Members are required to find their own books. Many are available through the Pueblo Library District.
The book list has a link to discussion questions. Members are asked to read the book and answer the questions prior to the meeting. The meeting will consist of an author presentation, discussion of questions and overview of the following month's book.
The book club has been limited to ten members. Please sign up at the store or by calling 719‑553‑0340. Communication with members will be through email.

Meet & Greet Local Authors
June 18 author series:
This month's featured local authors are Buck and Arlene Weimer.
Buck is the author of "The Darien Jungle Shakedown Cruise," a true story of a young man's adventurous experience of riding a motorcycle from California to Panama. Once there, he decides to walk 200 miles through the nearly impenetrable Darien Jungle into Colombia, South America. Re-written 40 years after the experience, the author gives a reflective view on youth, risk-taking, survival and growth.
Buck and his wife Arlene are the authors of "Traveling the Circuits" a memoir of their backpacking travels. Local Author Meet and Greet books are available for sale.
Things They Are A-Changin'
- The location of books in Books Again is a-changin' - some categories of books are being moved, others are being combined, and still others are being eliminated entirely.
- The aim is to better organize the treasure of books in the store.
- However, the signage may not have kept up with these changes.
- So, if you can't find what you're looking for, just ask a volunteer for help.
