Walker Book Talk Circle-Evenings Meets the first Thursday of each month.
For over three years, Walker members have been reading quality literature and discussing their thoughts and perceptions in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. The purpose of our discussion is to
- promote reading for enjoyment, inspiration, and knowledge
- further the appreciation and understanding of good literature
- share information and ideas in a collegial atmosphere
- enhance reading, thinking, and communicate skills.
No club membership is involved, but we encourage membership in Walker Memorial Library so that you can borrow materials.
The Walker Memorial Library offers two Book Talk Circles reading and discussion group. The series is offered on the third Tuesday at noon and the first Thursday at 6:00PM of each month.
The books for the noon group are preselected by participants and the list is available below. The books for the evening group are selected a few months at a time.
Fiction and nonfiction books are the selected choice of the members who meet and vote on suggested titles. Books are available at the library for loan. The list is eclectic so that readers may stretch their reading tastes. All genre of literature is included on the list from year to year. Books are not picked for their ease or popularity, rather for the insight and challenge they may present to the reader.
Both book discussion groups are led by Librarian Jennifer Santomauro. The groups are cozy and friendly and the discussions lively. Light hearted and fun, Jennifer can be heard on WMPG radio on Wednesday evenings during her community radio program.
