Rob Kugler, author of A Dog Names Beautiful, will be at our Library on Wednesday, May 29th @ 7:00 p.m.
It is our honor to have another Broken Bow High School graduate visit the library this month to promote his newly published book. Many in our area will recall that Rob Kugler joined the Marines, served in the Middle East, and sadly lost a brother in the fighting. This highly acclaimed non-fiction book balances Rob’s personal journey of grief with the inner peace he finds with his chocolate lab Bella at his side. When Bella is diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, Rob shares one final, epic road trip with Bella. As they travel cross-country, the pair meet Marine buddies, participate in veteran support group events, and learn to live in the moment. During the journey, they encounter remarkable, life-changing men and women who are quick to make friends with this incredible three-legged dog. A Dog Named Beautiful is a book full of inspiration, hope, love, tears, and laughs.
We intive you to hear Rob speak about the experiences resulting in this book. Copies will be available to purchase and have Rob sign. This event is sponsored by the Library Foundation.

Book discussion

Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMorris

Monday, May 20th at 7:00 p.m.

The sign is a last resort. It sits on a farmhouse porch in 1931 but could be found anywhere in an era of breadlines, bank runs and broken dreams. It could have been written by any mother facing impossible choices. For struggling reporter Ellis Reed, the gut-wrenching scene evokes memories of his family’s dark past. He snaps a photograph of the children, not meant for publication. But when it leads to his big break, the consequences are more devastating than he ever imagined. At the paper, Lillian Palmer is haunted by her role in all that happened. She is far too familiar with the heartbreak of children deemed unwanted. As the bonds of motherhood are tested, she and Ellis must decide how much they are willing to risk mending a fractured family. Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.

 If you are interested in participating in the discussion and need a copy of the book, please contact us at 872.2927 and we’ll save a copy for you.  


Please stop in the library and enjoy the Arrow Artist Art Show that in on exhibit through the end of May. We are so pleased these talented individuals chose to display their work here at the library!
