What I Read Banner

Program Banner

January is probably the least exciting month of the year. Let’s be honest, the holiday season is over, and it’s so cold that leaving the house seems like a chore. But KHCPL has just the ticket to beat those winter blues.

On Tuesday, January 23 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., KHCPL will host Tin Man Brewing and comedian Chris Bowers downtown at KHCPL Main for our first Guys on Tap. (Don’t let the name fool you, anyone 21+ can attend.) Bowers is a regular guest host on the nationally syndicated radio program “The Bob & Tom Show.” He’s the host of “Trial by Laughter” on Comcast, and he’s appeared on Fox’s standup comedy show “Laughs.” I would tell you all about Tin Man Brewing, but if you haven’t been there yet, you just need to visit the old downtown train depot and discover one of Kokomo’s best places for beer. It’s worth it, trust me.

While you’re waiting for Guys on Tap, here are some movies and books to get you ready.
