Book Groups

Bright Spot Book Group:  September 15 @630

(ebook & audiobook available here)

We will be discussing What She Left Behind by Ellen Marie Wiseman on Tuesday, September 15th at 6:30PM using Zoom meeting software. In this stunning novel, the acclaimed author of THE PLUM TREE merges the past and present into a haunting story about the nature of love and loyalty—and the lengths we will go to protect those who need us most.

Please send email to or to let us know if you are planning on attending. We will send reminders as well as answer any of your software questions.
Write Local-Zoom Meeting
September 4, 11, 18, 25, 10 AM

Write local is the Library’s writing workshop. All styles and genres welcome. We read works in progress (3-5 pages at a time) or new, completed works and then discuss them. Critiques are congenial and friendly. We’re all writers enjoying each other’s work and helping each other.

To join in through Zoom please email Adult Services Librarian, John Maruskin: He will send you a Zoom invitation to the next meeting.

You will be able to share files of your work with the group through the Zoom File Share function.
Short Story Reading Club, Thursday, September 24, 6:30 PM
“Barcelona: Open City,” by John Wray
This month’s story was selected by group member, Adra Fisher. She found it in the New York Times’ “Decameron Project,” which features stories about living during COVID19 by 29 contemporary authors including Edwidge Danticat, Margaret Atwood, Charles Yu, and David Mitchell. You can find all the stories by searching for New York Times Decameron Project.
While there, you can read John Wray’s story. If you’d rather have a hardcopy or PDF, email, and let me know which you prefer. I can prepare a hardcopy you can pick up at the Library. Or I will be glad to mail one to you.
If you’d like to join the discussion on the 24th, email me by Wednesday, September 23, and I will send you the Zoom invitation. Questions? Please email.
Meeting of Minds-Zoom Meeting
Tuesday, September 29, 6:30 PM

Join Meeting of Minds, Zoom Edition, by emailing Adult Services Librarian, John Maruskin:

He will send you an invitation to the meeting and answer any questions you have about the meeting topic and format.

Meeting of Minds is the Library’s discussion group. We meet once a month to discuss prearranged topics, sometimes with readings, or to free-style and see where the conversation leads. There is no agenda. We discuss topics; we do not argue. All viewpoints are welcome, in fact, encouraged. Join your friends and neighbors for lively, congenial discussions about current events, scientific ideas, philosophy, or good jokes. Laughter is encouraged, too.
