From the Library – Iron Book Discussion Group Reads “The Lincoln Highway” by Amor Towles in March 2023

The Iron Book Discussion Group has selected Amor Towles’s The Lincoln Highway for their next meeting in March 2023:


BOOK DESCRIPTION: In June 1954, eighteen-year-old Emmett Watson is driven home to Nebraska by the warden of the juvenile work farm where he has just served fifteen months for involuntary manslaughter. His mother long gone, his father recently deceased, and the family farm foreclosed upon by the bank, Emmett’s intention is to pick up his eight-year-old brother, Billy, and head to California where they can start their lives anew.

But when the warden drives away, Emmett discovers that two friends from the work farm have hidden themselves in the trunk of the warden’s car. Together, they have hatched an altogether different plan for Emmett’s future, one that will take them all on a fateful journey in the opposite direction—to the City of New York.


Copies of The Lincoln Highway can be picked up from the Book Discussion Shelf on our first floor. The book is also available to download through Overdrive/Libby as an ebook or an audiobook.

An in-person discussion of The Lincoln Highway will be held at the library on Tuesday, March 14, at 7:00 PM.

And an online discussion of the book will be held via Zoom on Thursday, March 16, at 3:00 PM. Participants will receive an email with the login information for Zoom after registering.
