Book Clubs

Together-Apart Book Chat

We may be physically apart but that doesn't mean we can't be socially together. Welcome to the Morrill Memorial Library's virtual book chat to bring together readers in Norwood during this time.

On several Wednesday evenings each month come prepared to talk about one or two books that you're reading or have read recently read - they can be books you recommend or books you'd give a "steer clear!" rating.

We'll be using the Zoom platform to have our video discussion and I recommend either a computer or tablet for the best user experience, though smartphones will work well, too.

If you'd like to join us, please use this link. Feel free to practice ahead of time to make sure you can sign in to Zoom. There is also a phone number you can call to join the discussion if you're not able to join using a computer:

Titles on Tap

Titles on Tap hasn't gone away! We won't be meeting in person during the COVID-19 outbreak but we will be meeting virtually using Zoom! Email Liz at lreed@minlib.net to get the Zoom meeting information. Our next meeting will be 4/28 at 7:30 pm to discuss "Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come."

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.

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 selection for our next meeting.

McGuire Housing Book Club

If you would prefer to attend a book club that is smaller in size, the 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 selection for our next meeting.
