Book Discussion

Rising: Virtual Book Discussion

This year's Reading Across Rhode Island (RARI) selection is Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore by Elizabeth Rush, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Rising is a highly original work of lyric reportage and a haunting meditation on how to let go of the places we love. 

The ebook of Rising is available for simultaneous use on eZone now through June 13. There are no holds, no waiting. Borrow Rising now here.

Reading in the Kitchen: A Cookbook Club

A book club for those who like to read cookbooks and enjoy a community meal.

The group meets monthly on the third Monday night of the month from 6:30 to 8 pm. Participants are asked to bring a dish to share from that month’s cookbook and their own table setting. 

Registration is required. Space is limited. To register, contact Community Engagement Librarian Jessica D’Avanza at or call 401.247.1920 x7.

Mock Caldecott Family Book Club
