Novel Conversations is a book group that alternates between classic
novels and more recent works of fiction and nonfiction. Participants are
welcome to come to all the meetings or just those that sound
interesting. Multiple copies of each book are available for checkout in
the library and are, whenever possible, made available in large print,
audiobook, and ebook editions.
Novel Conversations meets the third Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:00 pm in the Board Room. Refreshments are served!
