The Tyngsborough Public Library’s book club meets 8 times a year on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm; 4 times through September and December; and 4 times through March and June. For a full schedule of Book Club meeting times and books, visit: https://www.tynglib.org/books-more/book-club/.
For our first session, starting in September, the theme is Multi-Genre! We will be reading four books, each with a differing genre and subgenre. Hopefully this will encourage conversation within the group where we can reflect on similar themes and character dynamics depicted in various settings, writing styles, and genres; embarking us on a journey to appreciate and analyze similar ideologies across these interchanging factors. It can also be a great way to step outside of your reading comfort zone!
No registration required. Copies of each title are available at the circulation desk approximately one month before each meeting. Drop in to any meeting regardless of prior attendance or completion of the book. Email [email protected] with any questions.
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan Genre: science fiction dystopia
When She Woke follows a stigmatized woman struggling to navigate an America of a not-too-distant future, where the line between church and state has been eradicated and convicted felons are no longer imprisoned and rehabilitated but chromed – their skin color is genetically altered to match the class of their crime – and then released back into the population to survive as best they can. Hannah is a Red; her crime is murder.
