About the Fireside Readers

The Fireside Readers Book Discussion Group was formed in October 2005.  Discussions are open to members of the area community, as well as college students, faculty and staff.  Over the past few years we have focused on discussing memoirs, biographies, and other works of nonfiction.  Several members of the group have been with us since the beginning, and others join us when we're reading a book of personal interest.

The group traditionally meets on the fourth Monday of the month, taking time off in the summer and over the winter holidays.  We meet from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the community room next to the library.  At each meeting light refreshments are served. 

Please join us for an upcoming meeting, even if you have not yet read or completely the month's selection.  New members and guests are always welcome!
