The Staff Picks book group is reading The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach this month. The discussion will be at the Fox Branch Library on Wednesday, April 16, at 7pm. The Art of Fielding, as its title suggests, has a little something to do with baseball, but don’t let a lack of enthusiasm for sports stop you from reading it – like The Brothers K by David James Duncan, there’s much more to this story than baseball. There are plenty of copies available for checkout at the circulation desk, or you can request the book through the catalog. Laura will lead the discussion; as always, this book discussion is free and open to the public.
Our May book is Above All Things by Tanis Rideout, a tale of historical fiction and adventure described as “The Paris Wife meets Into Thin Air.” The discussion will be on Wednesday, May 15, at 7pm in the Robbins Library Conference Room. Reserve your copy now or pick one up from the circulation desk (starting mid-April).
I’ve heard a rumor that June’s pick might be nonfiction. Till then, we hope you pick up one or both of these thought-provoking novels, and come discuss with us!
