Do you enjoy discussing fiction and non-fiction books?  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.

The Second Thursday Book Discussion Group meets on the second Thursday of every month from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM in the Dublin Library Program Room.  On February 11th, 2016, Second Thursday Book Discussion Group will discuss  the novel “March”  by Geraldine Brooks.   The novel recounts the Civil War experiences of Mr. March, the absent father in Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. An idealistic New England cleric, March becomes a Union chaplain and later finds himself assigned to be a teacher on a cotton plantation that employs freed slaves.  His narrative begins with cheerful letters home, but March gradually reveals to the reader the horrors of war that he does not write about to his family.

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 February 11th, 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.  This book club will be discussing “The Orphan Master’s Son” by Adam Johnson on February 3rd, 2016 in the Dublin Library Program Room.

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