In-person book clubs are returning to the Duluth Public Library
Hooked on books? After a two-year pandemic hiatus, book clubs are coming back to the Duluth Public Library.
Starting in February, the Main Library will be offering four in-person book clubs based on your reading interests. Each month, members will pick out what to read and meet once a month to talk about it.
Library staff are monitoring COVID-19 cases and the meetings could move online or be canceled if needed.
Additional information and a list of questions for each book club can be found on their website. Here is a preview below:
The Book Club in a Bar- Thursday, February 10, 2022 – 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm:
Books and food go to together like peanut butter and jelly, so why not have both? Each month participants will meet at a different local bar to discuss their book of the month. February’s pick is The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware and the meeting site is Grandma’s Saloon in Canal Park. Registration is required.
The Non-Fiction Book Club- Tuesday, February 15, 2022 – 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm, Main Library, Green Room:
Are true stories your thing? Do you like memoirs, true crime, factual truth bombs? The Non-Fiction Book Club is for you! February’s choice is Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson, a comedic memoir exploring extreme depression and neurodivergent. In Lawson’s book, you will learn what it is like for a person whose brain works differently and how they process the world around them.
The Morning Book Club- Thursday, February 17, 2022 – 10:00 am – 11:00 am, Main Library, Gold Room:
Do you enjoy a warm cup of coffee or tea with your book club? We are offering a morning book club for those of you whose evenings are full and you just need a break to talk about books. This month we will be discussing Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale, the tale of two sisters and their struggles and triumphs through the Nazi occupation of France. Read the book now before it becomes a movie later in 2022!
The Diversity Book Club- Thursday, February 17, 2022 – 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm, Main Library, Gold Room:
Book clubs offer us a chance to read into the lives of those different from us. Our minds are opened to new experiences all from the comfort of our armchairs. We read to broaden our horizons, and choosing diverse books is a fantastic way to start conversations with those different from us. In February’s book, Felix Ever After, Felix Love wants to fall in love. But when an internet bully dead names Felix in front of his entire school life becomes even more challenging. Told with amazing finesse and charm Callender will introduce us to what it is like to be transgender and how to find love in this world.
Mt. Royal and West Duluth locations also have book clubs of their own and they meet monthly.
