Calling All Book Group Members…join us at Book Group Expo in the Darien Library Community Room. One lucky attendee will even go home with an iPad mini!

Explore the newest books, earmarked as good Book Group selections, with Jen Dayton, Collection Development Coordinator. Representatives from Harper Collins and Penguin Books will also be in attendance. Jen will present some “under the radar” books now available through the Library’s ‘Books in a Bag’ program and the publishers’ reps will cover new and forthcoming titles of interest to book groups.

Michael Hainey, author of After Visiting Friends will keynote the event. His memoir is a moving account of one man’s attempt to uncover his family’s long-buried secrets.

Our Book Group Staff will demonstrate how to navigate our Book Groups web page, where you can reserve titles, post current reads, and find book discussion guides. Meet the Library Book Group Team: Marianne, Asha, and Pat over refreshments. Network, share thoughts on book selections, and exchange tips on how to lead a successful book group discussion. And if you missed winning the recent Powerball, have heart, you may win one of the Expo door prizes!

Save the date. We look forward to seeing you!
