All adults interested in joining an adult book discussion group are invited to attend the next Open Book meeting where we will be discussing “The Shipping News” by Annie Proulx. This National Book Award Winner and National Bestseller is a “lyrical page turner” about the struggle of Quoyle, a thirty-six year old man who retreats with his two daughters to his ancestral home on the Newfoundland coast. This darkly comic portrayal of the atypical contemporary American family is sure to be an intense and lively discussion.

Hey teens! Ever heard of speed dating? Well throw in some popular anime and graphic novel books and plan to have yourself a unique dating experience. Attendees will be given a specified amount of time at a designated location to experience some great new novels and before you know it, the timer will sound and you are off to the next “dating” subject. At the end, we will see if you can guess what each novel is before revealing the titles and authors/illustrators of each. All the novels will be available for you to check out and take home with you at the end of the event.
