Four committee members, Monica LaVold, Nancy Miller, Mary Greatens and Heather Johnson, stand at the public library before a bust of Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War historical novel, "The Killer Angels," selected as the spotlighted book for the 2013 River Falls Reads. Other committee members involved in the book selection were Mike Norman, Katie Chaffee, Kurt Leichtle, Mary Louise Olson, Jean Ritzinger, Kirby Symes, Jera Terreng, Ruth Wood and Bonnie Carroll.

Book group makes historic choice
So many things seemed to come together to make "The Killer Angels" the right choice:
--These (2011-2015) are the sesquicentennial years for the American Civil War.
--The popular and critically acclaimed movie "Lincoln" is playing at theaters.
--The public library will be staging a major Civil War exhibit in February and part of March.
