You can now join our book clubs online!
While our branches are closed to the public, we’re still offering book discussions via Zoom.
Our It’s a Mystery Book Club will meet online at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 2. We’ll discuss Glass Ocean by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White. It’s a thriller that links a desperate author, a disgraced member of Parliament, and the sinking of the Lusitania. You can borrow the audiobook on Hoopla or the ebook on OverDrive right now.
If you enjoy reading thriller, true-crime, noir, mystery, and detective novels and want to join our Mystery Book Club, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for the meeting link.
Similarly, our Monday Night Book Club will confer on The Radium Girls by Kate Moore at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 22. The book tells the true stories of the women who became sick by working with radioactive material during World War I. You can borrow the book and ebook on either Hoopla or OverDrive.
Each month, the Monday Nigh Book Club discusses a different bestseller, popular read, or book of interest. Email email@example.com if you’re interested in joining.
Finally, MPL’s Collections Development Manager Barb Hauer hosts our Book & Brush Club that discusses art historical books. While the club cannot meet in the library, Hauer is sharing her prepared talks online. Hauer’s most recent talk is on Henri Matisse and the fauvist movement, which sprang up as a response to impressionism.
Hauer’s talk will be published at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27, and can be watched on our website.
