7 p.m., the Denver Book Club meets. The cost is $3 per person.
The fiction book to be discussed is "The Bartender's Tale," by Ivan Doig. It's set in 1960 as Tom Harry, a beloved, no-nonsense bartender in a small Montana town, is working long hours to raise his 12-year-old son, Rusty, alone.
Rusty is the voice and perspective of the novel as Doig captures the charm and confusion of trying to understand a complicated adult world. The novel is described as both a celebration of the American West and of fathers and sons.
Josephine Jones guides these discussions.
