Hammondsport Book Discussion Group
The LIBRARY BOOK CLUB is open to all adults and teens who love to read and talk about it!
New members are always welcome. The book club meets at the library on the second Monday of each month at 6:45 pm, unless otherwise stated.
Upcoming dates and selections:
January 13, 2020, at 6:45 pm – “Lincoln at the Bardo,” by George Saunders. An unforgettable story of familial love and loss that breaks free of its realistic, historical framework into a supernatural realm both hilarious and terrifying.
February 10, 2020, at 6:45 pm – “The Lager Queen of Minnesota,” by J Ryan Stradal. A generational story of family, tragedy, perseverance & forgiveness, all in the context of a passion for brewing beer as told through the small-town Midwestern lives of three stout women who survive, strive & remarkably reinvent themselves.
March 9, 2020, at 6:45 pm – “Great Believers,” by Rebecca Makkai
A multiple awards winning novel of friendship and redemption in the face of tragedy and loss set in 1980s Chicago and contemporary Paris and about what it’s like to live during times of crisis.
April 13, 2019, at 6:45 pm – “The Once and Future King,” by T.H. White. Once upon a time, a young boy was tutored by a magician named Merlyn in preparation for a future he couldn’t possibly imagine. A future in which he would ally himself with the greatest knights, love a legendary queen and unite a country dedicated to chivalrous values. A future that would see him crowned and known for all time as Arthur, King of the Britons.
The next month’s selection is normally available for pick up at the library front desk on book club night.
