Library Literature Book Club This Weekend!

Hi all,

I just wanted to give a friendly reminder that our summer Library Literature Book Club starts this weekend!

We have two groups signed up, for both classic literature and contemporary fiction.

The classic literature group will be meeting from 10:00-11:30 in the main conference room, and the contemporary fiction will follow immediately afterwards from 11:30-1:00.

If you’ve signed up for the club, you know that the first books will already be assigned and you should have started reading the first several chapters.

Classic Literature Group

This is a great American classic. If you haven’t already obtained your copy, please contact Sue Minston at the main library branch to reserve your spot.

We also are please to announce that you can get a free The Catcher in the Rye audiobook via http://freeaudiobookguide.com

We’ll be asked to read through the first 3 chapters of the novel this week, which covered Holden’s initial presentation, through his journey to Manhattan.

Please bring any questions and comments you may have, and you can discuss them in the group.

Contemporary Fiction Group

This is the first book in the Song of Fire and Ice series, and has since been made into the popular television series by HBO.

It’s important to note that the club will meet to discuss the original version of the book, not adaptations made for the tv series. There are copies of the book available at the front desk, and you can also get a free Game of Thrones audiobook if you’d like. Ask Sue Minson for details.

Please read through chapter 6 by this Saturday’s meeting.

Other Book Ideas

Please note that since this is the first meeting of the summer, we’ll also be discussing options for what each group will read over the course of the summer. Check out goodreads.com for ideas!

Though the first books have already been set, we welcome ideas for other books. Please bring ideas and favorites, and a reason you want to cover that book in a group.

Each group will then set its own schedule and vote on future books for the rest of the summer!

Hope this turns out to be a great first meeting, and I look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
