At present, the Katonah Village Library runs two adult book groups – the Katonah Village Library Adult Book Discussion Group and the World Affairs Book Club and one multigenerational one – Me + 1 Book Club.
Katonah Village Library’s Adult Book Discussion Group
The Library’s Adult Book Discussion Group meets every three weeks (with occasional one-week lapses due to holidays). The group meets on Wednesday evenings at 8 PM and talks informally about plot, character, motivation, language, and anything else that comes to mind for about an hour before checking out the author’s biographical facts and what critics have had to say about the book under discussion.
Anyone interested is cordially invited to pick up a copy of the upcoming book (lists for future dates and copies of the current book are always available) and join the fun! The books are almost always fiction, with a fair distribution between male and female authors; and a range of publication dates from the nineteenth century up to a few months ago.
2018 book titles are listed below
|January 10||Mohsin Hamid||Exit West

Me + 1 Book Club
The Me + 1 Book Club is a multigenerational book group for children 12+ with an adult (parent, grandparent, aunt/uncle/cousin, guardian, neighbor or family friend).
