Langlois Library Reader Book Group


Thursday, November 13, 2014 - 3:30pm

The Langlois Library Book Group is a readers group that meets monthly at the Library. The group selects a book for each month, and members then read the selected title and meet to discuss it. The meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month @ 3: 30 pm at the library.  New members always welcome. Even if you haven't read the month's book, drop in and see what a lively group we are. Our selection of books is very ecletic  -ranging from best sellers to the classics, fiction to non fiction. We've  even read the poem/play, T.S. Elliot's  Murder in the Cathedral, and much lighter fare as well.  We have now been meeting for 16 years and 1 month. It's been a really stiumulatin,, engaging  and fun to boot. Of interest, we read Doig's The Sea Runners in 2006 and now we are returning to read more of one of our favorite authors.
