The Friends of the Library sponsor a moderated book club that meets on the first Thursday of every month, September through June, at 6:30 pm in the community room.
Current Book Title
Join the Rowley Library Book Club on Thursday, January 3 at 6:30 p.m. for a discussion of The Turner House by Angela Flournoy. The Turners have lived on Yarrow Street for over 50 years, through children and grandchildren, births and deaths, and the decline of their city. Now that their aging matriarch can no longer live on her own, this complicated extended family is gathering to decide what is best to do with a house worth less than the mortgage and a past that haunts, and shapes, their futures. Ah, siblings!
Pick up a copy of the current book at the library, then drop in to share your thoughts. We will meet on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m., and future titles are listed below.
