Becket and Washington's Community Library

The Becket Athenaeum

Book Club

All are welcome to join us at the Athenaeum on Tuesday, October 2nd at 1:30pm, we will discuss The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah.


On Tuesday, November 6th at 1:30pm, we will discuss The Leavers by Lisa Ko.


We meet at 1:30pm on the first Tuesday of the month to discuss the book over tea/coffee and make our next selection. 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:

  • Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  • Mudbound by Hillary Jordan
  • 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.
