A variety of genres are discussed at the First Colony Book Group, which meets on the fourth Wednesday of every month, beginning at 1:30 pm, in the Meeting Room. The discussion on May 23 will be on Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation, written by Cokie Roberts.
The Amiga Book Club, a discussion group for Spanish-speaking readers, meets on the fourth Thursday of the month, beginning at 12:00 noon, in the Conference Room. The May 24 discussion will be on La piel del cielo, written by Elena Poniatowska.
