The club will begin Tuesday, Jan. 2, and continue through March 16. High school-age students may also participate in the reading club.
Book club participants can earn prizes just by reading the books of their choice. Prizes will include tote bags, coffee mugs, chocolates and key rings. Participants will be limited to three prizes while supplies last.
Participants who read five books may enter the grand prize drawings that will be held when the Blizzard of Books concludes in March.
All books must be checked out from and returned to Spring Lake District Library; or downloaded from the library's website, sllib.org, to qualify for the reading club.
Book club participants who attend a free presentation about adventure author Jack London will receive book club credit for having read one book. Dr. John Bruni, a visiting professor of English at Grand Valley State University, will present "Jack London: The Man Behind the Stories" at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10. He will share information about London, who overcame a difficult childhood and was considered a celebrity during his lifetime because of his writing, social activism and personality.
The reading club is sponsored by the Friends of Spring Lake District Library. For details, call the library at 616-846-5770 or visit the library's website.
