Book Clubs

Titles on Tap

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s, and the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. The group meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s of Norwood. Read the latest book selection, and come out to meet like-minded readers, eat, drink, and be merry!

To find out what we’re reading next, learn more about the group, and see what we’ve been up to, visit our website and follow us on twitter @titlesontap.

First Thursday

The Morrill Memorial Library adult book group, the First Thursday Book Club, meets Fall through Spring at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month, February through May and October through December.

At their February 2, 2017 meeting the group will be discussing "Bel Canto" by Ann Patchett. Copies of the book in regular print and large print can be picked up at the Circulation Desk.

Enjoy a lively discussion of a variety of books. Call 781-769-0200, Ext 112 to sign up.

There is no book discussion in January but please attend Fireside Reads held in January each year. There is also no book discussion group meetings in June, July, August or September but make sure you check out the date for Beach Reads held each summer.

 

Senior Center Book Club

Did you know the Outreach Department runs a book club at the Norwood Senior Center? This group meets year-round at 10 am on the third Monday of the month. We alternate between fiction and non-fiction reads, but we always find books that lead to great discussions. Some examples of our favorite past reads are: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Art Forger by B. A. Shapiro, The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin, and The Hotel On the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.

Each month the books are available for pick up at the library. Click here for the title of our next meeting.

If you have any questions, please call Nancy Ling in the Outreach Department at 781-769- 0200, ext 228.

 

McGuire Housing Bookclub

If you would prefer to attend a book club that is smaller in size, the one group at the McGuire Housing’s Community Center might be for you. We meet throughout the year on the second Wednesday of the month. We’ve explored a variety of book titles over the years, but some of our favorites were the following: The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, Little Bee by Chris Cleave, One Good Dog by Susan Wilson and the classic To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

The books are available for pick up at the library ahead of time.  Click here for the title of our next meeting.

If you have any questions, please call Nancy Ling in the Outreach Department at 781-769- 0200, ext 228.
