There’s a book club for everyone at Briggs

July 5, 2018

Have you ever read a book that was so good (or so bad) that you just had to talk about it? Avid readers are invited to join any of three Brigg Lawrence County Public Library monthly book clubs.

All you have to do to participate is check out the monthly selection at the host branch library (or download a digital copy or use your own), read the book and then join us on the scheduled day for a lively conversation.

The South Point group meets at 11 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month. They will be talking about “Because You’re Mine” by Coleen Coble on July 10. Call 740-377-2288.

The Ironton group will discuss “Lady Maybe” by Julie Klassen at 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 18. This group meets on the third Wednesday monthly at 2:30 p.m. Call 740-532-1124.

The Proctorville book discussion club meets at 2 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month and will talk about “The Husband’s Secret” by Liane Moriarty on July 19. Call 740-886-6697.

The Chesapeake library is looking for a group of individuals who enjoy reading outside their comfort zones for a new book group to meet at 6 p.m. one Tuesday a month. If you’re interested in starting a new book club at the Chesapeake library, call Tami at 740-867-3390.
