Do you enjoy books?

One of the fun things the Literacy Coalition does is to facilitate a monthly book club. Before COVID we would meet, share snacks and a glass of wine, then discuss our book of the month.


Since March, we meet on Zoom from our homes but still engage in lively discussions of each title. We meet on the first Wednesday of every month. The discussion starts at 6:30 pm and we finish no later than 8:00 pm. We attempt to alternate between fiction and non-fiction each month. Here is a table of past titles and January’s title for discussion.


September 2020 American Dirt Jeanine Cummins

October 2020 Pale Rider Laura Spinney

November 2020 A Painted House John Grisham

December 2020 Sapiens Yuvai Noah Harair

January 2021 The Kite Runner Khaled Hosseini


The group chooses books. We strive to make sure they are available as audiobooks to be sure everyone can participate.


Our group includes some of the Literacy Coalition tutors and board members, some retired teachers, and others in the area who love the intellectual stimulation of book discussions. It is free and open to anyone who loves reading.


Book clubs are really a discussion of life as much as about any particular title are we do gt into some interesting and exciting conversations. Another benefit of belonging to a book club is that you read some books you might not have chosen for yourself.


You are invited to participate! If you would like to be included in our invitation list simply send the subject line “Bookclub” to litco34@gmail.com and we will see that you receive an invitation to our next book club meeting, January 6, 2021
