Community Book Discussion Groups

One of the main goals of One Book - One Lincoln is to encourage residents to read and openly discuss the same book. Talking about great literature with others often adds richness and depth to the experience of reading. We encourage you to join other members of the community in discussing The Devil in the White City during September, October and November. Everyone is welcome; there will be no need to pre-register.
