The Book Club Spectacular

Have you been pondering starting up or joining a book club? Perhaps you already belong to a book group and just want some fresh ideas regarding book selections or discussion topics.Either way the Everett Public Library has an event for you.

Thanks to the Friends of the Everett Public Library, this Saturday, September 21st, the library will be hosting a Book Club Spectacular starting at 10:30 am at the Main Library in the auditorium. Like all good spectaculars, ours will have a special guest star: author Molly Wizenberg.

Molly is the author of the New York Times bestseller A Homemade Life and the award winning blog Orangette. At the spectacular she will be talking about her forthcoming book Delancey and the first 75 attendees will be receiving a copy. In addition, those attending can enjoy refreshments based on Molly’s recipes from A Homemade Life.

But that’s not all. An Everett Public Library veteran book discussion leader will be there to talk about titles that make for great book club reads as well as tips for leading your own book club discussions. You can also get a sneak peak of the Library’s new online system for reserving book group sets. And don’t forget to bring gently-read books to exchange with your fellow book club enthusiasts. No registration is required and, as always, this library program is absolutely free.
