Amherst Books Noontime Book Conversation
- Tuesday, January 8th at 12:00 noon - 1:00pm (Noontime Book Conversation)
will feature Michael Greenebaum discussing, Cassandra at the Wedding
, by Dorothy Baker. Meeting ordinarily on the second Tuesday of every month from 12:00pm until 1:00pm, the group has no fixed members (although quite a few regulars). Readers are urged to nominate a book to be read, especially if they are willing to lead the discussion. We focus on fiction & drama with occasional foray into the graphic novel. We limit the length of our selections to about 200 pages, although this is a guideline rather than a fixed rule. We believe in the joy of re-reading, so some of our selections are works that many have already read at least once. The noontime book group is under the general oversight of Michael Greenebaum (firstname.lastname@example.org) who selects the books & leads the discussions. He is happy to hear from those with ideas or questions. Amherst Books offers a 10% discount on the month’s book for those who plan to join the group.
