O'Connell Branch Book Groups

When: The third Tuesday every month from 6:30 - 7:30PM

Where: O'Connell Branch

Reading Interests: We read primarily contemporary fiction and non-fiction, occasionally dipping into the wider pool of yesterday’s writers, and classics. Past selections include: Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin, and Circe by Madeline Miller.

Requirements: None. Those interested are encouraged to attend to share their reviews with this informal group in an open, collegial atmosphere. Titles are chosen a month in advance. Please contact the branch to find out the current read. The librarian ensures that multiple copies are available at the Branch. When possible Large Type and Books on CD are also ordered.
