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 January 12th, 2017, Second Thursday Book Discussion Group will discuss “Rocket Girl: The Story of Mary Sherman Morgan, America’s First Female Rocket Scientist,” by George D. Morgan. This is the true story of America’s first female rocket scientist, who is credited with the invention of the liquid fuel Hydyne in 1957, which powered the Jupiter-C rocket that boosted the United States’ first satellite, Explorer 1.  Written by her son, it describes Mary Sherman Morgan’s vital contribution to launching America’s first satellite and the author’s own journey to uncover his mother’s lost legacy, which was buried under a lifetime of personal, political, and technological secrets.

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 12th, 2017.

The Third Thursday Book Discussion Group and the Wednesday Evening Adult Book Discussion Group are not looking for new members at this time.
