The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At the center of Mountains Beyond Mountains stands Paul Farmer. Doctor, Harvard Professor, renowned infectious-disease specialist, anthropologist, the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant, world-class Robin Hood, Farmer was brought up in a bus and on a boat, and in medical school found his life's calling: to diagnose and cure infectious diseases and to bring the lifesaving tools of modern medicine to those who need them most. This book shows how radical change can be fostered in situations that seem insurmountable, and it also shows how a meaningful life can be created, as Farmer - brilliant, charismatic, charming, both a leader in international health and a doctor who finds time to make house calls in Boston and the mountains of Haiti - blasts through convention to get results.

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).

The fiction book discussion group meets each month to carefully analyze the current selection in a warm and welcoming setting.  In June the group holds their annual potluck supper preceding the discussion; please bring a dish to share. To join one or all monthly meetings, paperback copies of the book are available at the reference desk for $5. This program is funded by the Friends of the Library.
