The Friends of the Brainerd Public Library has teamed up with Roundhouse Brewery for Chapter 8 of Books Burgers and Brews.  Books Burgers and Brews is a book club that is open to the public and held on 4th Mondays starting at 6 p.m. We supply the books, discussion, and some fun extras.   See details on our next discussion below and the full chapter line up at the bottom of the page!  

Our vision for this event is to provide a fun venue to gather with friends and enjoy a fun discussion.  We like to call it... "A Book Club With A Kick".  We would love to have you join us! 


September 25th, 2023: 


Duchess Day Radley is a thirteen-year-old self-proclaimed outlaw. Rules are for other people. She is the fierce protector of her five-year-old brother, Robin, and the parent to her mother, Star, a single mom incapable of taking care of herself, let alone her two kids.

Walk has never left the coastal California town where he and Star grew up. He may have become the chief of police, but he’s still trying to heal the old wound of having given the testimony that sent his best friend, Vincent King, to prison decades before. And he's in overdrive protecting Duchess and her brother.

Now, thirty years later, Vincent is being released. And Duchess and Walk must face the trouble that comes with his return. We Begin at the End is an extraordinary novel about two kinds of families―the ones we are born into and the ones we create.


Join Sheila and Laurel from the Books Burgers and Brews at Roundhouse Brewery each month at 6:00 pm for a fun BOOK-filled discussion.  Fun giveaways are included as well as dinner.  Register today!  

BBB books are available the month they are being discussed by picking them up at the Brainerd Public Library front desk.  The books at the library are first come first served. The Library is now open regular hours to the public.
