Resolve to Read, and Talk About, Books

 If your New Year’s resolutions include reading more and getting out to meet new people, then why don’t you achieve both at once by joining one of the many monthly book discussion groups offered by the Library? 

The Library’s book discussions take place during the day and in the evening.  They focus on a range of genres, so there should be something for everyone.  For those who enjoy mystery and intrigue, there is the Murder by the Book discussion group.  If you prefer history, biography and current affairs, then The Nonfictioneers should fit the bill.  The Critics’ Circle and the A.M. Book Group focus on a wide range of works of mostly fiction to suit all tastes.  We also have a Poetry Discussion Group led by a retired Columbia University English professor. For those who prefer a more relaxed approach, Books and Breakfast provides an opportunity for participants to share what they have been reading over a delicious breakfast. The Library also runs book programs for members of Founders Hall and Ridgefield Crossing.

So check the Library’s website at for details and put one or more of these discussion groups on your calendar. What better way to stimulate your mind and make new friends in 2013!
