If we do not receive the minimum number of registrants, this event may be canceled. A valid email address is required to register for all Grafton Public Library programs. A Zoom link will be sent to each registrant no later than twenty-four hours before the event is scheduled.   If you are unable to attend, please call the Grafton Public Library at 508-839-4649.

Virtual Book Discussion: Not Just for Young Adults Book Group

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of An Enchantment of Ravens, by Margaret Rogerson, available in print, audio on CD, and through OverDrive/Libby in eBook and eAudio format.


Description: "Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel's paintings are highly prized. But when she receives her first royal patron--Rook, the autumn prince--she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes--a weakness that could cost him his life. Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt's ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love--and that love violates the fair folks' ruthless laws. Now both of their lives are forfeit, unless Isobel can use her skill as an artist to fight the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.”

Virtual Book Discussion: Daytimers' Book Group

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of The Noel Diary, by Richard Paul Evans, available in regular print, large print, audio on CD and through OverDrive/Libby in eBook and eAudio format.


Description: Bestselling romance author Jacob Churcher hasn't been home for almost twenty years -- not since his mentally ill mother kicked him out of the house when he was just sixteen. When a lawyer calls, days before Christmas, to inform him that his estranged mother has passed away and left her house to him, Jacob returns not just to settle the estate but to try and reconcile with the past and the pain and abuse he experienced as a child. Also, maybe cleaning out her house will be slightly less depressing than spending the holidays alone, watching reruns of Christmas classics. But as it turns out, the house holds more than just difficult memories. Jacob's mother had become a hoarder and he must excavate through two decades' worth of clutter. As Jacob digs through the detritus like an archaeologist, he uncovers many puzzling items, including a diary left by someone named Noel, a young woman of whom he has no recollection, who stayed with Jacob's family during her pregnancy. And that's not the only echo from the past. Jacob has an unexpected visitor: Rachel, a woman looking for the mother who put her up for adoption thirty years before. United by their quest to make sense of the past and rewrite their futures, Jacob and Rachel begin a search for Noel. Along the way they find more than they could possibly have imagined, including grace, forgiveness, and a chance at love.

Virtual Book Discussion: GPL Mystery Book Group

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of The Hour of Death by Jane Willan, available in regular print, large print, audio on CD, and through OverDrive/Libby in eBook format or Hoopla in eBook format.


Description: The sisters of Gwenafwy Abbey have cherished their contemplative life--days spent in prayer and reflection, tending the Convent's vegetable gardens and making their award-winning organic cheese, Heavenly Gouda. Life seems perfect, except for Sister Agatha, a die-hard mystery fan who despairs of ever finding any real-life inspiration for her own novel--that is, until the abbey's sexton is found dead under an avalanche of gouda. Despite the reservations of the local constable, Sister Agatha is convinced it's murder, and the game is afoot. Armed only with the notes she's scribbled during her favorite podcast, How to Write a Mystery Novel, as well as lessons learned from crime heroes ranging from Hercule Poirot to Stephanie Plum, Sister Agatha leads the nuns of Gwenafwy Abbey (and her unwitting sidekick, Father Selwyn) as they begin a race against time to resolve the death of Jacob, save the abbey, exonerate a beloved postulant, and restore the good name of their cheese.
