June 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

books-brews

This month, the Waco-McLennan County Library’s traveling book club visits Southern Roots Brewing Co. to discuss Emily Sweeney’s Dropkick Murphy: A Legendary Life, which chronicles the unbelievable life of Dropkick Murphy, a professional wrestler who put himself through medical school during the Great Depression and then opened Bellows Farm. A one-of-a-kind institution, it served as both a facility where elite athletes could train and a secluded place where down-on-their-luck alcoholics could go to sober up discreetly.
