Fiction Book Discussions

Contemporary Club with staff fiction specialist Kevin Broccoli

contemporary club The library’s Book Club meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 3pm to discuss a different book. Copies of the book are reserved for all members for your convenience. In addition to the selected books of the month, we discuss other books we’ve read and talk about suggestions for possible selections.
Tuesday, May 6,at 3pm we’ll be discussing Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.
On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in any number of ways. Ursula's world is in turmoil, facing the unspeakable evil of the two greatest wars in history. What power and force can one woman exert over the fate of civilization -- if only she has the chance?*
Tuesday, June 3 at 3pm The book to be discussed will be The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer.

Author Holds

Author Holds. Starting This June
We’re starting a new program at the library to make it easier to get the newest titles sooner rather than later. If there’s a particular author you want to keep tabs on, give the Circulation Desk your name and the names of the authors you like and we’ll make sure to put your name on hold for them as soon as they put out new books. Get ready to kiss those long lines good-bye!
