Our May book club pick is Huckleberry Hill by Jennifer Beckstrand.  Set in Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin, this book is about two octogenarian Amish folks who try their hand at matchmaking.  It’s the first book in the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series.  We will be discussing this book on Wednesday, May 29th, and there are several copies available at the circulation desk for check out.  Feel free to join us for the in-person discussion here at the library at 1 pm, some or all of the online discussion questions posted throughout the day, or both!  You decide!  Here is the link to the online discussion:  You can also access the discussion through the Black Creek Village Library’s Facebook page.
