I’m writing to extend an invitation to join us for the next meeting of our New York Librarians Book Club. Although we’re happy to have returning attendees, the group is open to anyone who wants to drop in for occasional discussions. Our upcoming meeting will be held at a member’s apartment in Chelsea on Tuesday, February 15th at 6:30 PM. We welcome you to join us for a casual book discussion with other librarians and library students, a light meal, and some post-Valentine’s Day candy!
Our first club selection was This Book is Overdue: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save the World by Marilyn Johnson, followed by Sinclair Lewis’ Nobel Prize-winning small town satire Main Street, in which the protagonist, Carol Milford, spends her pre-marriage years as a public librarian in the Twin Cities. Our next title is the member-suggested The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr.
If you’d like to participate in online discussions, post ideas for future group reads, or message other book clubbers, please check out (and join!) our Goodreads group, here: http://www.goodreads.com/
You can RSVP for the book club meeting on MeetUp; we hope to see you there!
