Monthly book group in the library Gathering Room, alternating between fiction and non-fiction titles.

In January we will read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith.

The beloved American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the century.  The story of young, sensitive, and idealistic Francie Nolan and her bittersweet formative years in the slums of Williamsburg has enchanted and inspired millions of readers for more than sixty years. By turns overwhelming, sublime, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the daily experiences of the unforgettable Nolans are raw with honesty and tenderly threaded with family connectedness -- in a work of literary art that brilliantly captures a unique time and place as well as incredibly rich moments of universal experience.

Titles are selected for the year by the members; we focus on literary fiction, biographies and history.

Print and audio copies are available to borrow at the circulation desk.
