Let’s Talk About Books 

During the shelter-in-place conditions we are attempting to have our book club meetings via ZOOM.  Also, we will only be having one meeting per month and that will be at 2pm on the fourth Tuesday.  Please mark your calendars and be alert for an invitation to the meeting five or 10 minutes before the scheduled meeting time.

Where the Crawdad SingsOur July meeting is scheduled for July 20 at 7 pm.  As is our current normal, this will be a Zoom meeting.  Our book selection is Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

At the July meeting we will vote on book suggestions for next year.  We need 11 titles since we do not meet in August.  When considering your suggestions (a maximum of three) we ask that it is readily available at the library or in paperback.  Send your suggestions to Barbara Gallagher (see membership directory for contact info) with a short blurb about the book. She will compile the list and send to all before the meeting so you can be contemplating your choices.

So read the books and come join the fun!
