Book discussions set


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

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

In February, all book discussion groups will read “Frankenstein” by Mary Shelley.

Jackson County Public Library has received a Quantum Leap Grant from Indiana Humanities in cooperation with National Endowment for the Humanities to provide free copies of “Frankenstein” to customers and provide programming related to the novel.

Further information about this programming will appear in the spring program guide, available in print and on the Jackson County Public Library website,, at the end of this month.

The Tuesday Night Book Club meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Members will discuss “Frankenstein” at Bonanza, 2045 E. Tipton St., Seymour. Information services assistant Janet Hensen leads the club. Everyone attending should bring money if they plan to eat. Sign up for the program as you get your free copy of the book at the checkout desk.

Fantastic Fiction will meet at 11 a.m. Feb. 16 at the Seymour Library, 303 W. Second St. Led by head of adult services Julie Lingerfelt, this group meets the third Friday of each month.
