MPCA Book Club Presents: An evening with Doreen Vanderstoop

MPCA Book Club

The March 26th Book Club meeting will be special:  Doreen Vanderstoop, author of this month’s book, Watershed, will be our special guest.  She will speak about the book and answer your questions.  We hope that many in the community will come to the Upper Hall for 7:00 p.m. on March 26th.  Please RSVP to Brianna,, to allow the coffee, snacks, and chairs to be planned.

Watershed is a fast-paced dystopian novel about family bonds in the face of climate change.  It is 2058, and the glaciers are gone. A catastrophic drought has hit the prairies. Willa Van Bruggen is desperately trying to keep her family goat farm afloat, hoping against hope that the new water pipeline arrives before the bill collectors do.

Willa’s son, Daniel, goes to work for the pipeline corporation instead of returning to help the family business. When Daniel reveals long-concealed secrets about his grandfather’s death, Willa’s world truly shatters. She’s losing everything she values most: her farm, her son, her understanding of the past, and even her grip on reality itself. Vividly illustrating the human cost of climate change, Watershed is a page-turner of a novel about forgiveness, adaptation, and family bonds.

The Book Club meets on the fourth Tuesday evening of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 (except December) in the Lower Hall.  Contact Brianna at or 403 836-3626 for more information. Come and join in a lively discussion about a great book.
