Book Clubs

The library hosts the following book clubs for adults:

New members are always encouraged to attend. No registration or fees are required. The subject varies widely from fiction to nonfiction, light to esoteric reading. The three adult book club groups pride themselves on being a "reader driven" rather than a "leader driven" and choices are made based on titles that appeal to them at the time.

Anne Elliot who is pretty, intelligent and amiable, had some years before been engaged to a young naval officer, Frederick Wentworth, but had been persuaded by her trusted friend Lady Russell to break off the engagement, because of his lack of fortune and a misunderstanding of his easy nature. The breach had brought great unhappiness to Anne. Pre-Victorian England offers a romantic and whimsical backdrop for the characters.
