Ritter Book ClubsPosted: February 12th, 2015
We’ve got a book club just for you! If you’re interested in reading authors like Flannery O’Connor and James Joyce, then Classics Plus is for you. Shorelines Book Club’s shelf includes modern titles such as “Riding the Bus with My Sister”, “The Baby Thief” and “The Invention of Wings”. If you like teen titles – think “Hunger Games” and “Fault in Our Stars” – then try the group for Adults Who Read YA.
Classics Plus meets every first Tuesday at 7 p.m., Shorelines meets every third Thursday at 1 p.m. and Adults Who Read YA meet every second Monday at 7 p.m. Check the calendar to see what they’re reading next. Copies of each title are available at the customer service desk.
