September book discussions planned

Tribune staff reports

Jackson County Public Library book discussion groups in Seymour and Crothersville plan to gather in person to discuss book themes, writing styles, characters and more in September.

Books are available to check out at the library checkout desks or may be available digitally through OverDrive/Libby or hoopla.

The Tuesday Night Book Club will discuss its monthly book at 7 p.m. Sept. 14 over Zoom if the county remains at an orange or red COVID-19 status. If Jackson County returns to yellow or lower, the group will meet at San Marcos in Seymour.

Information Services Manager Janet Hensen will lead the review of “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents” by Isabel Wilkerson. Everyone attending should bring money if they plan to eat. Sign up for the program when getting the book at the checkout desk.

The book discussion group at the Crothersville Library, which meets on the third Wednesday of each month, will gather at Bard Street Park and share thoughts on “Summer of ‘69” by Elin Hilderbrand at 6 p.m. Sept. 15. Crothersville Coordinator Cindy Huckleberry will lead the discussion. The group is open to adults, and there is no attendance requirement.

Book It!, a book discussion group for teens and adults that has been meeting through Facebook, will now meet in person as a walking book club. Join Information Services Assistant Hillary Pacheco in the Seymour Library lobby at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 28 to walk through downtown and discuss “Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls” by Lynn Weingarten.

Register for the in-person walking discussion at myjclibrary.org/events or join Book It! on Facebook for health tips, to share your recipes or run or to further discuss the book.
