A Novel Idea Book Club

A Novel Idea Book Discussion

Let’s talk about books!

A Novel Idea book group is for adults looking to read and discuss thought-provoking fiction and non-fiction. Meetings will be on the second Thursday and third Wednesday of every month (currently held virtually via Zoom). The same title will be discussed at both meetings; attend the meeting that is most convenient for you.  Pick up the next title at the Adult Services desk.
