Book Discussions

The book discussion group is about to begin its 18th season!  If you would like to see a list of all the books chosen for discussion over the years, please click here.
The book discussion group at the Jonathan Trumbull Library welcomes readers.  Multiple copies of the discussion books are available at the upstairs circulation desk any time after the previous month's discussion.  Join our friendly group for as many or as few titles as you like.   The group meets at 6:30 PM once each month except July.  In August we meet to choose titles for the next 10 months.  Light refreshments are served. The group is coordinated,  moderated, and inspired by local author and editor Melissa Hayes. Group members lead individual discussions.
