Book Groups

A picture of a book group discussion.

Isn’t it fun to talk about a book you just read with others? The Nevins Library hosts several different Book Groups to do just that. We have groups for children, teens, and several different themed groups for adults. It’s a great way to get together with friends to talk about books and current topics, and there is always room for new members.

Thursday Evening Book Discussion

This book group for adults meets on the first Thursday evening of each month September through June. We meet from 7 – 9 pm.

Copies of the selected book are available at the Main Desk for the month leading up to the meeting. New members are always welcome.

Sociable Seniors

Sociable Seniors is a group for senior citizens who discuss books, movies, and anything else that peaks an interest. Whether we’re giving a thumbs up or a thumbs down, we always have a good time. Join us on the last Friday of the month at 10 am.

For more information, please call Tracy at 978-686-4080 x16.

Cookbook Book Club

This unique club meets on the third Tuesday of each month September through June at 6:30 pm.

Each month we pick a featured cookbook or theme of cookbooks. Participants choose a recipe to make from that book and bring it with them. Then everyone gets to taste test the recipes and we discuss difficulty level, what worked and what didn’t, and suggestions for making it again in the future.

Pat Graham facilitates this group, and keeps track of everyone’s recipe choices so that there is a good range of food to taste test each month.

Stranger Than Fiction Book Group

“Stranger than Fiction” is a book club specifically for those who enjoy reading non-fiction. We’ll read across all topics within non-fiction (e.g. Biographies, True Crime, Travelogues, etc.) except for the troublesome two—religion and politics. After all, we want to start a discussion, not a fight!

Some months we’ll be discussing a single title, other months there will be a theme and a list of suggested books on that topic from which participants can choose.

Forever Young-ish Book Group

( A Teen Fiction for Adults Group )

In the past couple of decades teen fiction has blown up. Teens everywhere clamor for the latest John Green or Cassandra Clare novel. These books aren’t just popular with the intended audience either. More and more adults are finding that teen fiction has a lot to offer, though they’ve left their high school years behind them. Come and join us for this BRAND NEW book club and explore all that the world of teen fiction has to offer.

This group will meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month, beginning in September.

If you are interested, or have any questions, please contact Amy via afowler@nevinslibrary.org.
