Book Group

The Fishers Island Library Book Club usually meets the forth Wednesday of each month. Everyone is welcome.

Upcoming Book Club:

TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 5:30 PM
The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times by Michelle Obama
Patty Norton will facilitate.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 24, 5:30 PM
The Women by Kristin Hannah
Diane Baker will facilitate.

We generally select the book for the following month at the preceding meeting. Feel free to BYOBeverage and a snack to share if you like.

Please invite friends who might also be interested. The more readers the better and so many people are unable to join on any given night that I don’t think we can have too many people. There are lots of book lovers on the island and it’s really nice to bring the group together. Please feel free to forward this to anyone else you can think of. All are welcome.

Contact Abby McCall with Book Club suggestions abimccall@gmail.com
and Librarian Ann Banks with questions librarian@filibrary.org.
