Waukesha Reads provides citizens the opportunity to come together to read, discuss and celebrate a single book and author. Since 2007, the program has been coordinated by the Waukesha Public Library and its many community partners. Waukesha Reads is designed to promote reading and unite our community through great books.
Welcome to Little Wing.
It’s a place like hundreds of others, but for four boyhood friends—all born and raised in this small Wisconsin town—it is home. One of them never left, still working the family farm, but the others felt the need to move on. One trades commodities, another took to the rodeo circuit. One of them hit it big as a rock star. And then there’s Beth, a woman who has meant something special in each of their lives.
When all of them are brought together for a wedding, Little Wing seems even smaller than before. Lifelong bonds remain strong, but there are stresses—among the friends, between husbands and wives. There will be heartbreak, but there will also be hope, healing, even heroism as these memorable people learn the true meaning of friendship and love.
Nickolas Butler’s Shotgun Lovesongs is that rare work of fiction that evokes a specific time and place, yet movingly describes the universal human condition. It is, in short, a truly remarkable book—a novel that, once read, will never be forgotten. (from Macmillan Publishers)
