LIVERPOOL — The Liverpool Public Library offers a diverse collection of book clubs for adults that allow readers to share their opinions about a monthly selection.
Clubs are set up to allow a variety of interests to enter the reading lists.
Fans of fiction can choose from Thursday Morning Book Klatch and After Dinner Books, which both meet Thursdays in the Carman Community Room, at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., respectively. Discussions will cover “The Mystery of Mrs. Christie” by Marie Benedict and “The Lincoln Highway” by Amor Towles on May 5 and June 2 for After Dinner Books, and “Anxious People” by Fredrik Backman on May 26 for Thursday Morning Book Klatch, which does not meet in June. Both these clubs offer virtual options for attendance. Contact [email protected] for Thursday Morning Book Klatch or [email protected] for After Dinner Books.
Books and Beyond addresses non-fiction books. The mission of the meetings are to reflect on the monthly choices’ deeper impact on the world. The sessions are 7 p.m. Thursdays in the Carman Community Room and via Zoom. The book for May 26 is “Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic” by Alison Bechdel; June 30 will cover “The Book of Hope” by Jane Goodall.
The newest addition to the book club roster is Positive Shelf Talk, which covers books that can help you improve your life by addressing behaviors and attitudes for happiness, creativity, inspiration, self-awareness and well-being. The club meets at 10 a.m. Saturdays in the Sargent Meeting Room and via Zoom. The May 14 book is “Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do: Take Back Your Power, Embrace Change, Face Your Fears and Train Your Brain for Happiness and Success” by Amy Morin. The June 25 book is “Emotional Intelligence” by Daniel Coleman.
