Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane
Monday, February 3 | 6:30 pm
Mario's Italian Kitchen, 201 Lewis Ave S, Watertown
A profoundly moving novel about two neighboring families in a suburban town, the friendship between their children, a tragedy that reverberates over four decades, the daily intimacies of marriage, and the power of forgiveness.

Blind Your Ponies by Stanley Gordon West
Monday, March 2 | 6:30 pm
Italian Kitchen, 201 Lewis Ave S, Watertown
Sam Pickett never expected to settle in this dried-up shell of a town on the western edge of the world. He’s come here to hide from the violence and madness that have shattered his life, but what he finds is what he least expects. It seems that every inhabitant of this forgotten outpost has a story, a reason for taking a detour to this place—or a reason for staying. Author Stanley Gordon West has filled the town of Willow Creek with characters so vividly cast that they become as real as relatives, and their stories—so full of humor and passion, loss and determination—illuminate a path into the human heart.
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Monday, April 6 | 6:30 pm
A deeply evocative story of ambition and betrayal, The Paris Wife captures a remarkable period of time—Paris in the twenties—and an extraordinary love affair between two unforgettable people: Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley.
No Visible Bruises by Rachel Snyder
Monday, May 4 | 6:30 pm
An award-winning journalist's intimate investigation of the true scope of domestic violence, revealing how the roots of America's most pressing social crises are buried in abuse that happens behind closed doors. Through the stories of victims, perpetrators, law enforcement, and reform movements from across the country, No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us explores the real roots of private violence, its far-reaching consequences for society, and what it will take to truly address it.
Until They Bring the Streetcars Back by Stanley Gordon West
Monday, June 1 | 6:30 pm
Until They Bring The Streetcars Back serves up a nostalgic journey through the streets of post-war 1949 Saint Paul, those wistful days of ten-cent sodas, big band music, and burning leaves. Stanley West weaves rollicking humor, riveting suspense and a bittersweet love story into the fabric of those optimistic times.
