September's Book of the Month
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Thursday, September 17th - Search the Catalog
After 17+ years, the Library's Adult Book Group is still going strong and always welcomes new members. This fall, the discussions return to the third Thursday of each month and will begin with Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel in September, followed by Enrique's Journey by Sonia Nazario in October, and The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah in November. There is no book group meeting in December.
Station Eleven is an audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization's collapse. It tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity.
Everyone is welcome to join in the discussion, Thursday, September 17, at 7:00pm in the Library Conference Room.
Book Group Reading Kits
Attention All Book Group Members!
Reading Group Kits include ten copies of a proven title and laminated discussion questions - all in a handy book bag for easy transportation. These kits have been in such demand that this year the Library has more than doubled its collection size! Designed to aid local book groups, Reading Group Kits ensure that each member has a copy of the title to read and that the discussion is thought provoking. Kits check out for six weeks to give groups plenty of time to read and discuss the title before they must be returned.
If you are a member of a book group, visit the Paso Robles City Library soon to choose your groupís next title! For more information about Reading Group Kits, contact Karen Christiansen, Adult Services Librarian, at 237-3870.
