Becket and Washington's Community Library

The Becket Athenaeum

BOOK CLUB

All are welcome to join us at the Athenaeum on Tuesday, January 8th at 1:30pm, we will discuss The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht. 


We meet at 1:30pm on the first Tuesday (except January due to the library closure for New Year's Day) of the month to discuss the book over tea/coffee and make our next selection.


Regular attendance is anywhere between 6 and 16 people. We generally wrap up by 2:45 or 3pm. We read fiction and non-fiction.


Here are a few that we've read over the years:

  • Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart
  • A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
  • Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


The most recent 24 selections are available in our Book Club section. All others are shelved in their appropriate section and have "Book Club" in green on their spine label.
