~Announcing a New Book Group~

Why not wind down your weekends with a relaxing book discussion group meeting late on Saturday afternoons? You've already done all your errands, and the morning sporting events are over, so now it's time just for you.

Saturday Samplers is a new book discussion group which will meet at the library one Saturday afternoon per month at 3:30 p.m. beginning April. 5th. Organized by staff member Evelyn Fischel, Saturday Samplers has been designed to offer a wide sampling of reading options.

We will read both fiction and nonfiction, novels and short stories. A willingness to sample different genres is encouraged, and we may try some classics, plays and teen fiction as well.

Don't expect to read the usual book discussion titles (it seems that many groups read the same books simultaneously.) Rather, anticipate reading books you may have overlooked in the past or perhaps never considered before. Our first book will be Isaac's Storm by Erik Larson. Look for a new posting on this book in the near future.

If you find yourself reading in a "rut," this is the group for you! If you feel adventurous or curious, this is the group for you! Remember, it is intended to be a casual, friendly and relaxing afternoon gathering. Won't you join us?
