Book Discussion Groups

Book discussion groups are a great way to connect with others, talk about or learn more about what you are reading, or to try reading something different.


The Sci-Fi Book Discussion Group meets on the first Thursday of each month to discuss a work of science fiction or fantasy. We have informal discussions in a friendly atmosphere. The group selects the list of titles and where to meet. We read everything from hard science fiction to fantasy, traditional formats to graphic novels, and occasionally even watch a film adaptation for comparison. Direct questions to Gregg Wamsley or Steve Westfahl.

October 4 meeting place and book:  
The group will meet at the Library in Conference Room #2 at 7:00 pm.  The book this month is TIMESCAPE
by Gregory Benford.  The group will meet prior to the meeting around 5:00 pm at Carl's Bar for food and drinks.


Mystery Mavens 

The Mystery Mavens get together once a month to discuss a book. Thisgroup meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7 pm in Conference Room #2 on the second floor of the library. Contact Steve Westfahl for more information.
