Read a Western -- Any Western In May!

For our May bookclub we are reading Westerns! Just pick any Western that you would like to read, and comment to this blog or join our Brown Bag Lunch Discussion program on Tuesday, May 31 at 12:00 noon.

What exactly is a western? Westerns tend to take place between the Civil War and the 1900. Generally characters either live in or travel to the American West in search of a better life, adventure, gold, love, etc. Main characters tend to live by a code, though that code will not necessarily fit the code of society.

Have you ever read a western before? Here's your chance. Let us know what you like, what you do not like, and what appeals to you.
