Book Discussion Groups

Book covers

"I believe we have an obligation to read for pleasure, in private and in public places."
      -- Neil Gaiman, the Reading Agency annual lecture 2013, as reported in The Guardian


Admission to book discussion groups is free with no advance reservations required. Reading the book before the group discussion is strongly recommended. Borrow a copy of the book in advance at the branch where the discussion is being held. Check the branch above to see if there is a special book pick-up date for the group you want to attend.
