February Book Groups
A little something for everyone: three new book groups are meeting at the library this month.
Parent-Child Book Group
Saturday, February 10th at 1:00 pm
Monthly book group for readers in grades 4-6 and their parents. This month’s book is Eggs by Jerry Spinelli, a quirky and moving novel about two very complicated children. They forge a tight yet tumultuous friendship, eventually helping each other deal with what is missing in their lives.
Books are available through the library, or from the Norwich Bookstore at a 20% discount. Questions? Email Children’s Librarian Beth Reynolds.
Wednesdays, February 14th & 28th, at 12:00 pm
After Jill Bolte Taylor, a Harvard-trained brain scientist, experienced a massive stroke in the left hemisphere of her brain, she observed her mind deteriorate to the point that she could not walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. It would take her eight years to fully recover.
For Taylor, her stroke was a blessing and a revelation. Her account provides a valuable recovery guide for those affected by brain injury and an inspiring testimony that inner peace is accessible to anyone.
Mondays, February 19th, March 5th, March 19th, and April 9th, at 7:00 pm
