On the third Thursday of every month but December, a delightful group of readers gathers in the Trustees Room of the Waltham Public Library to discuss a book. We come away from these meetings with a richer understanding of the books and admiration for the insights of the other participants.
Every year, I create the list of books for the coming year based on the group’s suggestions. This year, as always, we’re mixing it up with a range of titles from near and far, now and then:
If you would like to receive monthly reminders about book club meetings, you can subscribe to the list on the library’s web page under Subscribe to Library News.
Our first meeting in 2011 will be on January 20th, at 7:30 PM. We’ll talk about Gilead by Marilynne Robinson, the story of an old man passing on family stories and secrets to his very young son. Copies of the book will soon be available at the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor. For more information about the Book Club, see the library’s webpage. All are welcome — no need to sign up in advance.
