Book Discussion Groups

People of the Book

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 People of the Book during September, October and November. Everyone is welcome; there will be no need to pre-register.

We can provide a discussion leader for your group

So you want to have a One Book - One Lincoln discussion group, but you don't have a discussion leader? This Fall and Winter, Lincoln City Libraries staff will be available to book groups, extension clubs, organizations and businesses interested in hosting a discussion group. For further information, call Lincoln City Libraries, 441-8562
