Marshall Public Library to Host “Idaho Day” Book Discussion

Marshall Public Library

The Marshall Public Library is set to take part in the celebration of all things Gem State.


As part of the statewide commemoration of Idaho Day, Saturday, March 4 at 3 p.m., the library will host a special discussion of the book “The Enders Hotel” by Brandon Schrand. According to School Library Journal, the memoir tells “a classic coming-of-age story in which the author casts himself as an antihero in the tradition of Holden Caulfield. Schrand's stories of life at the family-owned Enders Hotel in Soda Springs, ID, resonate with the wide-eyed enthusiasm of youth and yet are balanced with the sober vision of hindsight.”


The event is part of the statewide Idaho Commission for Libraries celebration. The commission is working with nine public libraries in the state to hold a special book reading for their patrons where libraries choose an Idaho-themed book and hold a discussion of the work for patrons. In 2014, the Idaho Legislature established March 4 as Idaho Day “to commemorate the creation of Idaho by President Abraham Lincoln on that day in 1863.”


Copies of “The Enders Hotel” are available for checkout at the second floor reference desk at the Marshall Public Library.
