Book Clubs book clubs

 

There are three separate clubs to choose from—see times and locations below.

Like reading books and talking about life and happiness? Then these could be the groups for you. We come together for one common interest—books. Yet, in exploring the stories or history together, we will discover we have so much more in common as well. We don’t follow one genre or one author but try to find new areas to branch into each month. We may invite OLLI authors with manuscripts ready for publication. We don’t break the stories down, clinically, piece by piece. Instead, we prefer to discuss the story in general terms and how it relates to us.

 

Alternate Fridays Book Club

Alternate Fridays • 1:15 p.m.-3:15 p.m. • Room 21

September 14, 28 • October 12, 26 • November 9, (23 break), 30

“Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk” by Kathleen Rooney will be discussed in the first class. Please read the book before then. This engaging novel is “extraordinary … hilarious … elegantly written Rooney creates a glorious paean to a distant literary life and time―and an unabashed celebration of human connections that bridge past and future.”

Coordinator : Ann DeVaney
