We’re excited to start up Tales & Talk, our adult book club! Tales & Talk is a dedicated group that reads 3 books every spring and fall, with a discussion led by our adult services librarians. “We try to pick books that are well-reviewed, timely, and with a balance of subjects and styles” says Lisa Krekelberg, Adult Services Librarian.
There are two different groups that discuss the same books—one that meets in the mornings at 10:30 AM and an evening group that meets at 6:00 PM. This spring the group is reading:
New Boy, by Tracy Chevalier. The morning group will meet at 10:30 AM on 3/8 & the evening group will meet at 6:00 PM on 3/15.
The Plover, by Brian Doyle. The morning group will meet at 10:30 AM on 4/12 & the evening group will meet at 6:00 PM on 4/19.
And A Separate Peace, by John Knowles. The morning group will meet at 10:30 AM on 5/10 & the evening group will meet at 6:00 PM on 5/17.
Lisa Krekelberg says the group is a really rewarding experience. “Everyone has a chance to participate, and everyone brings something to the discussion from their life. I remember a while back we read The Girls of Atomic City. One of our participants’ daughter had worked in one of the nuclear facilities and it was wonderful to hear about her experience as a woman in that setting today compared to the experience then.”
