Book discussions planned at libraries

Jackson County Public Library book discussion groups plan to gather to discuss book themes, writing styles, characters and more this month at the Seymour, Crothersville and Medora libraries.

The groups are open to adults and teens, and there is no attendance requirement. The books are available to check out at the library checkout desks.

The Book’s Night Out group will discuss its monthly book at 7 p.m. Friday at Tumbleweed Restaurant, 1202 E. Tipton St., Seymour. Information services assistant Janet Hensen will lead the review of “The Invention of Wings” by Sue Monk Kidd. Everyone attending should bring money if they plan to eat.

The book discussion group at the Crothersville Library, which meets the third Wednesday of each month, will gather and share thoughts on the Next Indiana Bookshelf grant book “What This River Keeps” by Greg Schwipps at 6 p.m. Nov. 16. This book was presented to the library as part of a grant by the Indiana Center for the Book and Indiana Humanities, honoring the 2016 Indiana bicentennial.

Led by volunteer Tim Decker, the Seymour Library Books by Night group will meet a week early for its final discussion at 6 p.m. Nov. 16 for a conversation about the book “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by Mark Haddon.

Fantastic Fiction plans to get in a holiday mood by discussing “Christmas Wishes” by Debbie Macomber at 11 a.m. Nov. 18 at the Seymour Library. Led by volunteers Ann Schwein and Sharon Kamman, this group meets the third Friday of each month.

The Medora Library discussion group will meet at 6 p.m. Nov. 28 to talk about “Mistletoe Promise” by Richard Paul Evans. This group meets the last Monday of each month.
