Drum Roll, Please....

On May 1, we will begin reading People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. If you are affiliated with the Delaware County Literacy Council or are invited by a tutor, you may drop by DCLC from May 1 to May 8 to borrow a library copy of this book and read it.

On Wednesday, May 1,  we will have our first "One Book" meeting from 6 to 7 pm at the Literacy Council. Refreshments will be served, books will be distributed, and the new format will be discussed. Future meetings will be held the first of each month, with a new book being distributed and the previous month's book being returned at that time.  

Please Note: All library books will be signed out on an honor system, with the tutor signing being responsible for all lost or late items.
We will post invitations to comment on the book for every 100 pages or so (no spoilers, please!) and will meet on June 1 for an in-person discussion.

If you procure your own copy of the book, you are welcome to join us on May 1 for the kickoff, to contribute on the blog during May, and to meet again in person on June 1 to discuss the book.

Questions? Call 610-876-4811 and ask for Susan.

  1. What a great turnout! We had 6 readers present and 2 more who have checked out the book!

    We've decided to meet next on Monday, June 3, at Noon. Hope to see you there!


NOTE: Comments are now moderated. Therefore, it may take a day or two before they appear on the blog.

Recommended: Choose NAME & URL for profile (url is optional). If you choose anonymous as your Profile, please include your first name in your post so we know who you are. And if you REALLY do not like a part of the book, please temper your comments so others can continue to enjoy their reading. Thanks!
