Library offering book discussion groups

Adults and teens are invited to start their new year by reading books and then attending one or all of these free Jackson County Public Library book discussion groups in February.

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 Stephanie Sluder at D’s Diner in Freeman Field at 820 A Ave. East, Seymour, they will discuss “If I Stay” by Gayle Forman at 7 p.m. Feb. 12. Everyone attending should bring money if they plan to eat.

The February book discussion group at the Crothersville Library, which meets the third Wednesday of each month, will cover the book “The House of a Thousand Candles” by Meridith Nicholson at 6 p.m. Feb. 17.

Fantastic Fictioneers plans to gather and comment on the book “The Invention of Wings” by Sue Monk Kidd at 11 a.m. Feb. 19 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. Feb. 29 to talk about Sherri Woods Emmons’ “The Weight of Small Things.” This group meets the last Monday of each month.

The Seymour Library Books by Night group will not meet again until March 16, but its next book, “The Fire Next Time” by James Baldwin, can be checked out in mid-February.
