Last week I rambled a bit in my enthusiasm for my book clubs here at the library, and while I mentioned that we offer two other book groups, I didn’t really say much about them. Let me fix that now.
The first Thursday of every month at 6:30, a longstanding group meets for the Unforgettable Mystery Book Club. This group is currently led by none other than our fearless leader, Director Sandi Lang. She’s a serious mystery enthusiast, and if you want to see just how much, you should really try to make it to this week’s meeting. She’s been going on about how excited she is to be reading Nero Wolfe since she picked Please Pass the Guilt this summer, and I suspect it’s going to be a great discussion. If two days is slightly short notice, check out the group’s reading list for the rest of the year here and pop in when you can.
And on the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30, we have the Readable History Book Club. This group is led by the fantastic Barb Digianantonio, a retired Librarian who just wasn’t ready to stop coming to the library. This group reads some of the most popular current nonfiction books, such as Killers of the Flower Moon, as well as books about the most notable historical figures. (For instance, last year they read Alan Axelrod’s Patton and this year they’ve read The Accidental President about Harry S Truman, just to name two.) And sometimes, they don’t just read the books. Sometimes there are additional handouts that tie into the book they are discussing, video, or even a speaker. It’s a fantastic group, and you can check out what else they are reading this year here.
So between these two fantastic groups and my two groups, we hope to have your adult book discussion needs pretty well covered. All of these groups love new members, so please drop in and discuss some books with us!
