Literary Pairings Book Discussion Group generally meets the second Wednesday of the month from 7 to 8:30 pm from September through June. Participants will read an assigned classic one month followed by a contemporary readalike similar in theme, plot and/or characters the following month. Facilitators Nancy Christy and librarian Ben Hanley will lead the discussions and prepare questions. Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions as well. 

The current pairing for May/June is The Razor's Edge by W. Somerset Maugham and Home by Toni Morrison.

The group will continue meeting via Zoom for the foreseeable future. Zoom details will be emailed to participants two days prior to the book discussion.
