Taylor Memorial Branch is a book lovers’ paradise with three book discussion groups.
The Tuesday Afternoon Book Club was founded over 30 years ago. Several members have attended for 25 years or more. The club features stimulating literary discussions and visits from authors like José Latour, Wayson Choy and Anthony De Sa. Earlier this year the book club hosted author Kwai-yun Li who read from her book The Palm Leaf Fan: & Other Stories, and also enjoyed a luncheon of Hakka Chinese Food with the members. During summer the meetings sometimes move onto the library patio.
The next meeting will be on January 3 at 2 PM, featuring a discussion of Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith.
The Thursday Evening Book Club was founded in 1991. Its next meeting is on January 5 at 7 PM with a discussion of the international bestseller The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery.
Two years ago it became clear that one evening book club simply wasn’t enough to meet the needs of the community and The Tuesday Evening Book Club was created. The next meeting will take place on January 3 at 7 PM. The book discussed will be The Widow of the South by Robert Hicks.
Taylor Memorial Branch is located at 1440 Kingston Rd.
