Unless noted otherwise all events are free & open to the public.

Amherst Books 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 (mlgreenebaum33@gmail.com) 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.

Local author Joshua Goldstein will talk about his new book (co-authored by Staffan Qvist), A Bright Future: How Some Countries Have Solved Climate Change & the Rest Can Follow.
Local author James Cambias will read from his new novel, Arkad’s World.   Cambias is a writer, game designer, & co-founder of Zygote Games.   He has been nominated for the James Tiptree Jr. Award, & the 2001 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.   His earlier novels include A Darkling Sea & Corsair.
