We have book discussions galore for all ages and February is a great month to try one out. Tweens (grades 5-8) meet on Feb 1 at 6:30pm to discuss ‘Gathering Blue’ by Lois Lowry. Teens (grades 9-12) meet on Feb 8 at 6:30pm to discuss ‘Dark Water’ by Laura McNeal. Adults meet on Feb 21 at 6pm to discuss ‘Kitchen House’ by Kathleen Grissom and/or on Feb 22 at 10:30am to discuss ‘River of Doubt’ by Candice Millard. Children (grades 2-4) meet on Feb 27 from 5:30-6:30 with their brown bag suppers. It’s the perfect time of year to get cozy with a book! Book discussions will lead you to books you would not have tried on your own, new literature loving friends, and a myriad of other compatible books and people. All discussions are open to ‘drop in’ if you would just like to listen and see what all the fuss is about.
