Online Zoom Book Talk

Join us for either the evening or morning session this month as we discuss Anxious People by Fredrik Backman. Taken hostage by a failed bank robber while attending an open house, eight anxiety-prone strangers--including a redemption-seeking bank director, two couples who would fix their marriages, and a plucky octogenarian--discover their unexpected common traits. 

Copies of the book are available at both libraries. You can also read the book online or listen to the audiobook on Overdrive/Libby through CLAMS or another consortium in Massachusetts with your CLAMS card. Please email ckaufmann@clamsnet.org or call the library at 508-760-4820 to register to receive a Zoom link or with any questions.

If you need Zoom help, please call 508-760-4820 x1315 or email ckaufmann@clamsnet.org to set up a troubleshooting session or if you need any other assistance.
