Literary Pairings Virtual Book Discussion Group

THIS GROUP IS FULL. Please contact Ben Hanley at or 401-247-1920 x2 to be placed on a waiting list.

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, but participants are encouraged to bring their own questions as well. 

Our return meeting for the 2020/2021 year will be September 9, and will cover 1984 by George Orwell. This will pair with Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, the October title.

The group will continue meeting via Zoom while the library building is closed. Zoom details will be emailed to participants two days prior to the book discussion.
