People say Beartown is finished. A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever encroaching trees. But an old ice rink is the reason townsfolk believe tomorrow will be better. Their junior ice hockey team has a shot at winning the national semi-finals. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through town, leaving no resident unaffected.

Beartown explores hopes that bring a community together, secrets that tear it apart, and courage of an individual to go against the grain.

All women are invited to these discussions to share observations, enthusiasm, insights and the pure enjoyment of reading.
