Maureen Kilcullen does background research on the author and topic before each meeting of the Jam Session Book Club at the library at Kent State’s Stark campus. She’s researching World War II for the April discussion of “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.”
“I want a good discussion, and want to be able to answer questions that come up,” Kilcullen said. “We’re learning. We’ve got people reading things outside their comfort zone. I like that — that’s the librarian in me talking.”
