Beginning with an introductory session on Wednesday, March 2, Library Director Joe O’Toole will facilitate an Adult Reading & Book Discussion Series called “Memorable American Fiction from West to East.”
Each of the five novels will transport readers across the United States both geographically and chronologically. Participants will receive a free copy of each book to be read.
The group reconvenes monthly to relay insights, ask and answer questions, and discuss what makes each book memorable. Participants are asked to commit to the entire series, as sessions build on one another. Meetings will be held Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in-person at the Lyons Library and simultaneously via Zoom. Following is a list of meeting dates and books to be discussed:
- March 2: Series Introduction
- March 30: Riders of the Purple Sage by Zane Grey
- April 27: Native Son by Richard Wright
- May 25: Stoner by John Williams
- June 29: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg
- July 27: Empire Falls by Richard Russo
