If you love to read and talk about what you’ve read, this one is for YOU!  We meet at 7 p.m. on the last Thursday of the month.  No registration required — just come on in and join the conversation.

The Book Group is taking a break in December.

Next meeting, Thursday, January 30, 7:00 p.m.  This month’s title is Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know by Malcolm Gladwell.  The host of the podcast Revisionist History and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Outliers, offers a powerful examination of our interactions with strangers — and why they often go wrong.  Copies of the book are available in paper, on our Kindles-to-Go, and online for download.

February 27 The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes.  Set in rural Kentucky during the Great Depression, the novel  traces the lives a group of women working for Packhorse Library Project which served more than 100,000 residents living in remote areas of Appalachia. The story is told with Moyes’s usual verve and warm sympathy for her characters.

March 26 The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates.  Young Hiram Walker was born into bondage. When his mother was sold away, Hiram was robbed of all memory of her—but was gifted with a mysterious power. Years later, when Hiram almost drowns in a river, that same power saves his life. This brush with death births an urgency in Hiram and a daring scheme: to escape from the only home he’s ever known.
