CANCELLED – Have Book, Will Travel Book Club (Arkansas True Crime Month)

August 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm CDT

“Have Book, Will Travel” is a brand new book club experience hosted by the Garland County Library on the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a new theme will be chosen. You can choose any book to discuss with your fellow book club attendees as long as it fits that month’s theme. This club is meant to be about book discovery and discussion, as well as socializing with fellow readers who share common interests.

In August, we will meet at the Garland County Library and discuss true crime books. Registration required.

Below are just a few Arkansas-based true crime selections handpicked by library staff for your consideration. You are welcome to choose something else so long as it is true crime related.
