Monthly Book Talks
Meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 12:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Do you love to read outside of your comfort zone?  Do you enjoy talking about books with others?  Then our monthly Book Talk is for you!  This informal discussion group takes place at two separate times on the second Tuesday of the month - it doesn't matter which session you attend.  We vote annually in October for the books to read during the next calendar year. We choose among fiction, nonfiction, recent award winners, and classics.  Copies of the latest book are available at the Circulation Desk.  The following list shows upcoming book discussion dates and the book(s) to be discussed:
