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!

Rosie_projectJuly 21      The Rosie Project by Graeme C. Simsion

Don Tillman is a brilliant geneticist looking for a wife. He is having potential candidates fill out sixteen page questionnaires in his pursuit of a perfect life partner. His world is turned upside-down when Rosie, who doesn’t meet any of his requirements, walks into his office. This is a funny book about being comfortable with who you are and what you do.


Cookbook Club

bbqbibleThe Barbeque! Bible by Steven Raichlen

Thursday, July 16, 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. Our first-ever BBQ book sports lots of classic American and international recipes perfect for summer grilling (and plenty of sides and desserts for anyone who isn’t a grill master). Register in person by July 9.
