October is National Reading Group Month, sponsored by the Women’s National Book Association. Do you belong to a discussion group? Many of the Sno-Isle Libraries, including Oak Harbor Library, offer ever-evolving and always engaging book groups. Talking about books with friends and neighbors can be a transformative experience - plus you will discover titles you might never have selected on your own!
Share your love of reading and join a discussion group. On October 20 at 6:00 PM Oak Harbor's Highly Evolved Literary League (that's you) will discuss Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. The book describes the author's family's efforts to live on locally- and home-grown foods, an endeavor through which they learned lighthearted truths about food production and the connection between health and diet.
Love mysteries? Join the Whidbey Mystery Readers on October 27 at 3:00 PM as they discuss the mysteries of Marcia Muller. Choose any title by the author and drop in - the group is funded by the Friends of the Oak Harbor Library.
Sno-Isle Libraries and the Sno-Isle Foundation are proud to offer book discussion kits for book groups. Each kit includes 10 copies of a single title. Resources for book discussions may be found at publishers' websites, bound into some editions of the book, or at http://www.bookreporter.com/ or http://www.readinggroupguides.com/.
