Superior Public Library’s adult book club meets Thursday, Nov. 18, to discuss “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng, a gripping page-turner and sensitive family portrait that uncovers the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another. You can participate virtually or in person at 10:30 a.m. or 6 p.m., so you pick the time and format that works best for you.

Celebrate a day off school with Book Bingo for kids at 2 p.m. Nov. 24. You could win fun prizes including books, candy and small toys. No sign-up required.
