whistling season


Dublin Library currently offers three book discussion groups for adults. All the book discussion groups read and discuss a wide variety of fiction and nonfiction books and discuss the same book titles at different times.   Some of the titles covered recently have been “Gardens of Stone” by Sophie Littlefield, “Behind the Beautiful Forevers” by Katherine Boo, “Mayflower” by Nathaniel Philbrick, “The Book of Madness and Cures” by Regina O’Melveny, “The Soloist” by Steve Lopez, and “Plain Truth” by Jodi Picoult.

The Second Thursday Book Discussion Group meets as a rule on the second Thursday of every month from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM in the Dublin Library Program Room.  On January 14, 2016, Second Thursday Book Discussion Group  will be discussing Ivan Doig’s novel “The Whistling Season.”  The novel is narrated by Paul Milliron, an aging Montana state superintendent of schools, encharged with deciding the fate of the state’s remaining scattered rural schools, and who recalls the autumn of 1909, when he was 13 and attending his own one-room school in Marias Coulee.

Adult book discussion groups at Dublin Library are limited to a maximum of 10 participants per group.  The Second Thursday Book Discussion Group welcomes new members.  If you’d like to participate, come to the Adult Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book to read and come ready to have a lively and thought-provoking discussion with group members on January 14th, 2016.

The Wednesday Evening Adult Book Discussion Group, which usually meets on the first Wednesday of the month from 6:00 PM to 7:45 PM, is also open to new members.  Come to the Adult Information Desk for more information if you’d like to come to this book discussion group.

The Third Thursday Book Discussion Group is not looking for new members at this time.
