Join a Book Club!

It is a great time to join one of our book clubs at the Evelyn Meador Library. Now, as I say that, I know what you are thinking. It’s a bit of a busy season. There are presents to wrap, kids to entertain, and relatives to write, and the list goes on. However, after Christmas, things are going to calm down, and you are going to need to find something to do to fill up your time, and a great way to do that is to join one of our book clubs.

Book Club Meets Friday, December 7 at 2 pm

Please join us on Friday, December 7, at 2 pm for a discussion of Mr. Dickens and His Carol, by Samantha Silva.  In this work of fiction, we are transported back in time to Victorian England, where Charles Dickens has numerous reasons for not quite feeling the Christmas spirit.  Bah, humbug!  Full of references to true events in Dickens' life and the characters he created, Silva's debut is an interesting re-imagining of how A Christmas Carol, one of the most popular books of the holiday season, was written.

Join us as we discuss this romantic, Texas-size page turner!
