There's a new book club in town

by Readers' Services | May 14, 2018

 

In Cold BloodDo you have an hour to kill?

True crime is not a modern phenomenon--it dates all the way back to the Elizabethan era!  From historic tales of murder and mayhem to police memoirs and serial killer profiles, people read true crime for any number of reasons: a fascination with the dark side of human nature, vicarious thrills, or a need to understand frightening people and situations.

Join us at our NEW True Crime Book Club on the second Thursday of each month. We’ll meet in the reading room of the Readers’ Services department from 2:00 to 3:00 pm.  Our first meeting takes place on June 14, 2018.

 

June’s True Crime Book Club pick is Truman Capote’s masterpiece In Cold Blood, touted as the first “novelistic” work in the true crime genre.   Reserve a copy here.

Want to read ahead?  Our next meeting will be July 12, 2018.  We’ll be discussing Midnight in Peking by Paul French.  Reserve a copy here.

 

Questions?  Call the Readers’ Services department at 260-421-1235.

    Hi Donna,

    Our Aboite branch has a Cookbook Club.  Every month, they choose a theme or cookbook series.  Attendees are encouraged to try out a recipe within that theme and bring it to share.  So, while they aren't "reviewing" cookbooks, chances are this group of folks has strong feelings about cookbooks they've liked and disliked.

    This bookclub has already had their May meeting; I would recommend calling Aboite at 260-421-1310 for information about their June meeting.

    Thanks for reading our blog!

    Becky
