MAY 23: The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner

Read Any Good Books Lately? Every other month the group holds an open book discussion. Members are encouraged to bring a list of titles that they would recommend instead of discussing just one book. This is not limited to fiction. It can be anything!

**Participants without email may dial-in by phone.**


Historical Fiction Book Club

This is a low-maintenance online meeting space where you can share your love for historical fiction at your own convenience. There are no scheduled monthly meeting dates! We simply choose a book for the month and read at our own pace. We aim to provide a diverse range of historical fiction content that takes place across multiple continents and time periods. Participation in group discussions is not required, by any means.

We will do our best to make monthly book titles available for pickup in-person at the library, as well as on the Libby App (our digital e-book and audiobook content available to you through your Southern Tier Library System card).

Poetry & Short Stories Book Club
