What we're about

This is your literary and topical book discussion group in Central & North Phoenix! We usually choose to discuss books that have been reviewed on National Public Radio programming. Two books are paired around a common theme, and sometimes a non-fiction book is added to the mix. We've been meeting for 15+ years. If you enjoy and appreciate thoughtful discussion of literature, please join us. See below for our next month's meeting and book choices. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. and at 7:00 p.m. on the third Friday. Once the COVID pandemic ends, we will resume our in-person sessions which are often followed by a brunch or gathering to watch a movie related to a book we've read.

Selections: THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY by Matt Haig and THE THIRTEENTH TALE by Diane Sutterfield

Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better? In "The Midnight Library," Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision.

In 'The Thirteenth Tale," Vida Winter has spent six decades creating various outlandish life histories for herself which have brought her fame and fortune but have kept her violent and tragic past a secret. Vida hires biographer Margaret Lea (a young woman with a secret past of her own) to help write Vida's biography. Together the two women confront the ghosts of their pasts.
