Literary Conversations Book Club (fiction & non-fiction)
Every 4th Wed. of each month at 7pm

Formerly the American Experience Book Club, we’re broadening our focus! The Literary Conversations Book Club will focus on literature from the US or any of the former British colonies which still use English as their primary language. We’ll read plays, novels, and other works which examine current ideas that have been part of the literature for an extensive period of time, such as social issues, personal relations, and moral choices.  Members of the book club will engage with each other and the characters in our readings for exciting and enlightening discussions. All are welcome!

World Literature Book Club (fiction)
Every 2nd Tues. of each month at 7pm

The global economy has erased arbitrary boundaries between cultures.  On a daily basis, we interact with the world in both large and small ways.  We call phone banks in India, e-mail on-line businesses in England, drink fair-trade coffee from Columbia, read about micro-lending in Africa, and shop for green toys made in Thailand. But what about literature?  Does the country define the writer or does the writer define the country?  Or can literature take place in a global vacuum, devoid of setting?  Join us as we dip in the literary waters of many cultures and sample some of the best of the best, one book at a time.

Friends Book Group 
Every 3rd Wed. of each month at 3:30pm

If a book is worth reading it's worth discussing.  Friends Book Club meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 3:30 p.m. in the library conference room.  Books are democratically chosen from a wide variety of types. The public is welcome.  For more information call Ann  Roth-Card at 415/383-7306.
