Our Library Hosts Two Monthly Book Clubs
There are currently no openings in either Book Clubs, however, check back after the 2019 book selections are posted for possible waiting list. Copies kept behind the front desk.
Evening Book Club meets from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm on the first Monday every month (unless a Holiday).
Monday, January 7, 2019 Evening Book Club selection is Less by Andrew Sean Greer and Winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and available for check out at the front desk.
“Less is the funniest, smartest and most humane novels…Greer writes sentences of arresting lyricism and beauty. Who says you can’t run away from your problems? You are a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can’t say yes–it would be too awkward–and you can’t say no–it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world.
Next selection on Monday, February 4, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm.
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones.
The Afternoon Book Club meets from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm on the 3rd Thursday every month.
Thursday, January 17, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari
Harari’s book, Homo Sapiens showed us where we came from. His follow-up, Homo Deus, shows us where we’re going. Harari envisions a near future in which we face a new set of challenges. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century and beyond – from overcoming death to creating artificial life.
It asks the fundamental questions: how can we protect this fragile world from our own destructive power? And what does our future hold?
Next selection on Thursday, February 21, 2 pm – 3 pm.
