Special Event Book discussion for teens and young adults:    Tues., July 28, from 6:00 - 7:00pm.   Snack provided.

        Book / Movie talk about  Paper Towns  by John Green  (popular author of books such as The Fault in Our Stars)    This intense book has been made into a movie coming out July 24th.    Just like Fault in our Stars, the movie is predicted to be quite a hit and there has been renewed interest in the book.  Come discuss the book and/ or the movie, whether or not you have read or seen it,  you are welcome to come!  Whether you liked it, didn't, like some of John Green's books and not others, talk to others about why.  We have copies of the book behind our circulation desk, so come grab a copy if you want.   People at the discussion can enter to win 2 free tickets to the movie!    

The summary of the book is: "One month before graduating from his Central Florida high school, Quentin "Q" Jacobsen basks in the predictable boringness of his life until the beautiful and exciting Margo Roth Spiegelman, Q's neighbor and classmate, takes him on a midnight adventure and then mysteriously disappears."     Discussion will be led by Lue Ramsey, experienced homeschool teacher of literature.

Teen Book Club  -   Meets on the last Tuesday of each month at 3:45 for about 45 minutes  (B-W Bus #9 stops right at the library at 3:35).  Call the library if interested and we will get you a copy of the next book (ask for Hope;  Hope Melander is the facilitator).

    This group is taking a break until September.  Please check back with us then if you are interested!

 


Afternoon Book Club:  (ages 18 and over) -  Meets last Tuesday of each month at 1:00pm.

Books chosen are slightly older popular titles so that we can order multiple copies from the MORE system and no book purchase is necessary to participate.

                                    House Girl   by Tara Conklin                                          

2004: Lina Sparrow is an ambitious young lawyer working on a historic class-action lawsuit seeking reparations for the descendants of American slaves. 1852: Josephine is a seventeen-year-old house slave who tends to the mistress of a Virginia tobacco farm--an aspiring artist named Lu Anne Bell. When Lina learns that art historians now suspect Lu Anne's revered paintings were actually the work of Josephine, she embarks on a journey to piece together Josephine's story. 

 

 

Evening Group:    Tues. August 25, 7:00pm

We are resuming formal meetings of our Evening Book Club, on the last Tuesday of every month at 7:00 at the library.  Everyone is welcome!     Come and check it out.   We can decide about changing date/time when we see who all shows up.  The group decides what book to read and each orders a copy from the MORE system, so no purchase is necessary.

 

The book discussed this time will be The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, by Rachel Joyce.    " Harold Fry is convinced that he must deliver a letter to an old love in order to save her, meeting various characters along the way and reminiscing about the events of his past and people he has known, as he tries to find peace and acceptance."   It is a great book for discussing, so order one from the MORE system and think about joining us to talk about what you liked or didn't like about it!   If you  prefer,  call the library at 684-3813 and we can order one for you.
