Books Alive! Book Discussion

Our Library-sponsored group meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 2 pm. Books are available one month before meetings. All are welcome to attend!


August 16    The Word Exchange  by Alena Graedon

This bibliothriller explores the dangers of technology, where books and libraries have become archaic, replaced by smart phones in a web-reliant 22nd century. The future is terrifying because it is so believable. Will the printed word endure? If you are a lover of words and thrillers, you’ll enjoy this book.


Cookbook Club

moremexicanMore Mexican Everyday by Rick Bayless

Thursday, September 10, 6 pm

When we explore a cookbook, it’s potluck meets book discussion! Sign up at the Reference Desk, pick a tasty recipe from our enticing selection (we’ll keep track to avoid duplicates), and prepare it for the program. We’ll sample lots of good food, talk about what worked and what didn’t, and select future cookbooks. In September we’ll cook simple and delicious Mexican dishes from the sequel to our inaugural cookbook. Register in person by September 3.
