New Book Discussion Group

The library has begun a new Monthly Book Discussion Group. This group will meet one Saturday afternoon a month. The group is designed to give the flexibility that busy people need. Those interested can come to any session, but are not required to attend all sessions. Newcomers are always welcome.  

The West Virginia Library Commission is lending us copies of the upcoming titles. At each discussion, copies of the next month's book will be made available. After the meeting, copies of each month's book will be available from the Assistant Director. Copies will always be available from the library's collection or InterLibrary Loan. Some titles will also be available through WV Deli.  

March's discussion will be held on March 23rd at 1:30. This month's book is March by Geraline Brooks. This Pulitzer Prize winning novel is a fictionalized account of the Civil War experiences of Mr. March, a Union chaplain and the father of Jo, Beth, Amy and Meg of Little Women.   The following are the titles and meeting dates for the next few months:
April 27 - The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan
May 25 - The Last Runaway by Tracey Chevalier
June 22 - Serena by Ron Rash
July 27 - To be announced
August 24 - Defending Jacob by William Landay
September 28 - House of Abraham: Lincoln and the Todds, A Family Divided by War by Stephen Berry
October 26 - Witness at Hawks Nest by Dwight Harshbarger and John Patrick Grace

We have tried to select interesting stories with plenty of discussion material. These books may not have been on the bestseller lists, but were positively reviewed by the majority of those who read them. Please join us and add your voice to the discussion! (Listeners are welcome too!)
