Nonfiction Book Discussion*
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The nonfiction book discussion group meets at 1pm and 7pm, the second Monday, every other month, to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In 1955, white men in the Mississippi Delta lynched a fourteen-year-old from Chicago named Emmett Till. His murder was part of a wave of white terrorism in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared public school segregation unconstitutional. Only weeks later, Rosa Parks thought about young Emmett as she refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Five years later, Black students who called themselves “the Emmett Till generation” launched sit-in campaigns that turned the struggle for civil rights into a mass movement. Till’s lynching became the most notorious hate crime in American history.

Please register at the Information Desk.

Books will be available for purchase ($5). Library copies will also be available for checkout and all titles are available on our Book Discussion Kindle and Overdrive.

The Night Diary tells the story of Nisha and Amil, twins who are half Hindu, half Muslim who are trying to make sense of their place in a country literally divided during the India Partition in 1947. The British rule over India is ending, and political leaders have decided that the country will be divided in two: India for the Hindus and a new country -- Pakistan -- for the Muslims. Unfortunately, Nisha and Amil's home is in the new country, but their father is Hindu, so they must leave everything they've ever known. Nisha writes about the dangerous journey in her diary every night.

Fiction Book Discussion
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

 

The fiction book discussion group meets each month to carefully analyze the current selection in a warm and welcoming setting. To join one or all monthly meetings, paperback copies of the book are available at the reference desk for $5, or you can borrow a library copy. This program is funded by the Friends of the Library. 

Varina by Charles Frazier:

Sooner or later, history asks, which side were you on? Her marriage prospects limited, teenage Varina Howell agrees to wed the much-older widower Jefferson Davis, with whom she expects the secure life of a Mississippi landowner. Davis instead pursues a career in politics and is eventually appointed president of the Confederacy, placing Varina at the white-hot center of one of the darkest moments in American history—culpable regardless of her intentions.

The Confederacy falling, her marriage in tatters, and the country divided, Varina and her children escape Richmond and travel south on their own, now fugitives with “bounties on their heads, an entire nation in pursuit.”

Intimate in its detailed observations of one woman’s tragic life and epic in its scope and power, Varina is a novel of an American war and its aftermath. Ultimately, the book is a portrait of a woman who comes to realize that complicity carries consequences.
