Adult Discussion Groups

A Novel Idea

The Adult Book Discussion group meets on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm. We read thought-provoking titles with the goal of stimulating a spirited discussion. Stop by the Reference Desk to pick up the featured book and come to the discussion to get the next month’s title. Anyone with a library card may join the group.

April’s title is
Before the Fall
by Noah Hawley

The stories of ten wealthy victims of a plane crash intertwine with those of a down-on-his-luck painter and a four-year-old boy, the tragedy’s only survivors, as odd coincidences surrounding the crash point to a possible conspiracy.
