Book Club - June 15th

The Riverton Area Book Club is introducing some changes to be made in the selection of monthly books. Based on their knowledge of current reading trends and local interests, Library staff members are going to join in the group's decision-making by recommending books of merit. The library staff will continue to assist in determining availability and formats and arranging for interlibrary loan copies.

Book Club - May 18

The May 18 meeting of the Riverton Area Book Club will discuss Lilac Girls, by Martha Hall Kelly.
This historical fiction brings attention to the horrific practice of the Nazis to experiment on Polish women who were political prisoners in Ravensbruck, the major female-only concentration camp in Germany. Kelly makes the real-life New York socialite Caroline Ferriday her main character and adds to the story the lives of a young Polish girl who is a resistance fighter and Herta,a German woman doctor.

Book Club - Saturday, April 20 - 10:00am

This Saturday we turn back the calendar to 1843 to experience London in December with Charles Dickens struggling to come up with a book to satisfy his publishers and reading audience. And before the warm weather is here to stay we are asked to feel snowflakes on our faces once again as we consider Samantha Silva's touching tale about the creative process behind A Christmas Carol.


Book Club - April 20th

On April 20 the Riverton Area Book Club will look into the creative mind of Charles Dickens as he struggled with overcoming writer's block. In her debut novel Mr. Dickens and His Carol, author Samantha Silva uses humor, imagination, and historical detail to create a story about Dickens and the muse he needed when he was almost bankrupt and his publishers were demanding a new literary work. (For those of you who saw the 2017 movie "The Man Who Invented Christmas" this will be a familiar topic.) .
