The Fond du Lac Public Library hosts two adult book discussion groups every month. Two Ladies of the Evening Book Groups meet the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30-8 p.m. and the Afternoon Delight Book Group meets the second Wednesday of each month at 1:30-3 p.m. All groups welcome new members at any time.
Participants in the groups select by consensus the titles they want to read each month. The library provides copies of the selected titles a month in advance.
Some of the titles that have been featured in the book groups: 1,000 White Women, The Kite Runner, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Sarah's Key and The Help.
Are you interested in forming your own book club? The Fond du Lac Public Library can help. You will need to recruit people to join and get their contact information. You will need to decide where you will meet, how often you will meet, how the books will be chosen, what the focus or style will be for the group, who should lead the group and how the members will obtain copies of the books. The library can offer suggestions for titles and help in finding discussion questions.
