The Woods Hole Public Library will be starting their first in-house book discussion group on October 1, Thursday, starting at 4 PM. This program has been started to answer a perpetual and growing need among the book-reading public. While there are many book groups meeting monthly in people’s homes through-out town, all those groups seem to have reached their maximum number, so are closed to new members.
This new group at the Library is open to all ages and interests. It will be led by librarian Kellie Porter, who holds a master’s degree in literature and, naturally, loves to read. Se also takes great pleasure in discussing books and hearing other people’s opinions about their shared reading. She has chosen as the focus for this book group, “Forgotten Gems.” These titles are by well-known and respected authors, but are seldom read today.
The book which has been chosen for the first discussion is Reynolds Price’s “A Long and Happy Life.” Copies will be available for check-out at the Woods Hole Public Library. The plan for the book group is to meet every month, on the first Thursday of the month, throughout the winter. Each session should run about 1 hour.
