Libraries plan book discussions

Adults and teens are invited to read books and attend any or all of these free Jackson County Public Library book discussion groups in September.

The books are available to check out at the library checkout desks.

On the second Friday of each month, the Book’s Night Out group meets in a restaurant to discuss their monthly book. Led by information services assistant Janet Hensen, they will discuss “Flight of the Sparrow” by Amy Belding Brown at 7 p.m. Friday at Woodstock Grill, 1400 Shields Ave., Seymour (by the golf course near Riverview Cemetery). Everyone attending should bring money if they plan to eat.

Fantastic Fiction plans to talk over the book “Lisette’s List” by Susan Vreeland at 11 a.m. Sept. 16 at the Seymour Library. Led by volunteers Ann Schwein and Sharon Kamman, this group meets the third Friday of each month.

The September book discussion group at the Crothersville Library, which meets the third Wednesday of each month, will gather and share their thoughts on the classic book “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” by Betty Smith at 6 p.m. Sept. 21.

The Medora Library discussion group will meet at 6 p.m. Sept. 26 to talk about an Indiana Humanities Next Bookshelf grant novel, “Running Out of Time,” by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This group meets the last Monday of each month.

The Seymour Library Books by Night group will meet at 6 p.m. Sept. 28 for a  conversation about the book “The Fun Parts” by Sam Lipsyte. Led by volunteer Tim Decker, the group meets bimonthly.
