Brown Bag Book Club Seeks New Members!

The library’s Brown Bag Book Club will meet Wednesday April 22, at 12:30 p.m. The group will discuss “Beach Music” by Pat Conroy. The Book Club meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at the library. Current members say the club is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, discuss an author’s style, review history, and give opinions.  Members of the club choose the books to read, and therefore the group experiences a wide variety of literature. Members say they laugh a lot, and the meetings are held in a private room as not to disturb other patrons. Music, art books, trips, and personal experiences add to each discussion.  So far, the group has read Naked Came I (about Rodin), Me Before You (a current novel), and The Persian Boy by Mary Renault. The club reads at least one classic novel each year, and this year, the group selected To Kill A Mockingbird. For more information, contact Melissa Lopez at the library at 570-646-0826. The club members hope you’ll seriously consider joining them.
