Becket and Washington's Community Library

The Becket Athenaeum

Book Club

All are welcome to join us at the Athenaeum on Tuesday, October 3rd at 1:30pm to discuss The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud.


We meet at 1:30pm on the first Tuesday of the month to discuss the book over tea/coffee and make our selection for the following month. Even if you haven't read that month's book, consider attending to give input when selecting the next book.


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:

  • Scribbling the Cat: Travels with an African Soldier by Alexandra Fuller
  • Mudbound by Hillary Jordan
  • The Piano Tuner by Daniel Mason
  • Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson
  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


The whole collection is available in our Book Club section.
